WEEKEND EVENTS FOR JULY 22-23

This weekend is going to be a scorcher, so whether you're going to be racing or training, be very careful.

There are two events in the Lake area this weekend.  On Saturday, the Tuscumbia FFA 5K starts at 9:00 a.m. (registration opens at 8:00 a.m.) at the Tuscumbia city park.  More information about the event can be found in the listing under "Upcoming Events" further down this column.

A 0.05K run/walk (yes, it's only 164 ft. long) will be held at Shorty Pants Lounge on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. as part of the Change of Heart event to raise awareness of the need for organ donations.  (The advertisement in the newspaper says this is a 5K run/walk.   The copywriter apparently missed the decimal point.)

We want to wish the best of luck to Todd Raney, who heads west to Montana and Utah to run three marathons on three consecutive days.

CONCERNS OF POLICE SURVIVORS BLUE RIBBON 5K RUN/WALK (updated July 17th)

Sixty runners and walkers, plus six participating around the country on a virtual basis, toed the starting line at the fourth annual Blue Ribbon 5K Run/Walk in Linn Creek on Saturday.  The race was a fund-raiser for Camdenton-based Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S).

As has been the case with nearly every Lake-area race so far this year, attendance was down from last year, when 130 in-person and virtual runners and walkers participated.


It was a very warm 77°, with 82% relative humidity,
at the 9:00 a.m. start.

Osage High School cross country runner Derrick Puckett was the overall winner, in 19:25.  Derrick beat second-place finisher Nigher Alfaro by a mere 8 seconds.   

On the women's side, Heather Oddo, despite being five months pregnant, won easily, in 22:00, and placed fourth overall. 

Interestingly, in the four years of this race, there have now been four different male and female overall winners.

    
Overall winners Derrick Puckett and Heather Oddo.

Complete race results can be found here

We always like to welcome newcomers to our events, and Carolyn Youngberg (right) of Linn Creek was welcomed by none other than our best ambassador, Margie Gunter.

Anita and Pete Leyva won the "bluest" award.  Even Pete's shoelaces were blue.

Three members of our local running royalty--Jim McDermott, Scott Page and Doug Kueker--will have to live with the ignominy of having been beaten by a woman who's five months pregnant.  (Perhaps their faces should have been blurred.)

Retired Los Angeles police office--and now  Eldon resident--
David Burke made the race a family affair, bringing along daughter Chantel (left) and wife Janelle.

Current and retired law  enforcement officers at the race were recognized for their service.

You can view about 150 more race photos here

Finally, a big "thank-you" goes to Paul and Ginger Joyner, owners of Rolla-based Split Second Timing, who generously donated their time and services to the Blue Ribbon 5K.

ROCK 'N' ROLL CHICAGO HALF MARATHON & 10K (posted July 16th)

Scott and Jayna Gray interrupted their family vacation to run the 10K at Sunday's Rock 'n' Roll Chicago.  Don't give them too much credit, though--Sunday's high temperature in Chicago was only 73°.

Jayna finished in 1:19:29, placing 150th (of 248) in the women's 35-39 age group, while Scott finished in 1:38:12, placing 86th (of 90) in the men's 35-39 age group. 

The phenomenal Jamie Vest of Lebanon took third overall in the women's half marathon.  She finished in 1:20:58, ahead of 5,739 other women.

Complete race results can be found here.

Scott passed along a few photos.

RUN FOR THE FALLEN (posted July 5th)

logo

The Lake of the Ozarks' participation in the national Run for the Fallen event will be on Saturday, August 12th.  It will start at 9:00 a.m. at the Camdenton Middle School Theatre (map). 

This is not a race, nor is it a 5K.  Participants are simply asked to run or walk at least a mile in memory of those fallen soldiers, including 142 from Missouri, who gave their lives for our country in Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan).  There is no charge to participate, and people of all ages are welcome.

View the event flyer with more details here.

Visit the event's Facebook page for more information.

This is the eighth year for this event, which is organized by the Camdenton Area Chamber of Commerce.

9/11 FREEDOM RUN 5K (posted July 5th)

The 9/11 Freedom Run is going back to its original time and place.  After being held on Saturday evening at the campground below Bagnell Dam for two years, the fouth annual race will be held on the morning of Saturday, September 9th, and will start and end at JJ Twig's on Bagnell Dam Blvd in Lake Ozark. 

The firefighters of the Lake Ozark Fire Protection District organize the event to commemorate those New York City firefighters who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.  Proceeds from the event go toward the Lake Ozark firefighters' "Shop With a Fireman" program, which takes underprivileged kids shopping for Christmas gifts in a fire truck.

The 5K run/walk starts at 8:00 a.m.  Race-day registration begins at 7:00 a.m.

The entry fee is $20, or $25 if you register on race day.  Only those who register by August 25th will be guaranteed a t-shirt on race day. 

You can register online or by completing and mailing a downloadable registration form.
