ROTARY ROUTE 66 5K RUN OF LEBANON (updated October 21st)

All three of our Lake-area runners were podium finishers at the Rotary Club of Lebanon's Route 66 5K Run on Saturday,

First to finish was Mike Toth, who won the men's 51-59 age group (over five others) with a 26:15 finish.

Paula O'Connor finished in 27:41 and took second (of eight finishers) in the women's 51-59 age group.

Finishing one second behind Paula was Mike Sherbak, who topped three others in the men's 60-and-over age group.  Mike shaved nearly two minutes off of last year's finish time.


Mike Sherbak at the Pink Up the Pace 5K last week in Jefferson City.  Mike will soon be leaving the Lake area in order to be closer to his children and grandchildren in the southeastern part of the U.S.

Complete results can be found here.   A 13 year-old from Springfield was the overall winner (in 17:26) by a whopping five-minute margin of victory.

KANSAS CITY MARATHON, HALF MARATHON & 5K/10K (posted October 20th)

Despite being Missouri's biggest marathon and half marathon, the Kansas City Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K/10K had just one participant from the Lake area at Saturday's race. It was the fewest in the last eight years.

Jade Fletcher was our lone participant, running the half marathon in 1:54:07 and placing second (of 20) in the women's 17-and-under age group.

MISSOURI STATE HIGH SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY DISTRICT MEET (posted October 13th)

The Camdenton High School cross country team competed against 10 others at the Class 4, District 5 meet at Ha Ha Tonka on Saturday. 

The boys' team took fifth place, and the girls' team tenth place, in their respective divisions.  That ends the team's season, as only the top four teams advance to next weekend's sectionals.  However, three of Camdenton's runners placed among the top thirty individual runners, earning them a spot in the sectionals.

Garrett Mason, a senior, finished in 16:45 and placed ninth.  Jake Thoenen, a junior, placed 18th with a 17:17 finish time.  The only girl runner to advance is senior Skyler Sweezor, who ran a 21:08 and placed 21st. 

Should they finish within the top 30 at the sectionals, they'll advance to the state championship in Jefferson City on November 3rd.

PRAIRIE FIRE MARATHON (posted October 14th)

Her 3:48:11 finish at the 2017 Prairie Fire Marathon was the fastest marathon among Lake-area women last year, and it looks like may be happening again in 2018 for Bryna Edwards of Lake Ozark.  Racing in the rain (torrential at times, I've read) and cold in Wichita on Sunday, Bryna knocked a huge 24 minutes off of last year's time, finishing an outstanding 3:24:36.  She also won the women's 30-34 age group over eleven others. 

Perhaps the best news for Bryna, though, is that she beat the 3:30:00 qualifying standard for the 2020 Boston Marathon for women in the 30-34 age group. (Bryna is now 33 years old, and if her 35th birthday comes before April 20th in 2020, her qualifying standard would actually be 3:35:00.)  

Of the top ten fastest marathons ever run by a Lake-area woman, Bryna now owns three of them (the second, sixth and ninth fastest). 

This was Bryna's third consecutive Prairie Fire Marathon, and the third time was indeed a charm.  Congratulations, Bryna! 

Complete marathon race results can be found here.

ELDON DOG PARK 5K & PINK UP THE PACE 5K (posted October 14th)

It was two overall wins in two races this weekend for Jade Fletcher.  On Saturday, Jade won the Eldon Dog Park 5K, and then was the top female finisher in Jefferson City on Sunday at the Pink Up the Pace 5K, a benefit for the American Cancer Society.

    For her weekend's efforts, Jade Fletcher took home her 8th and 9th overall victories so far in 2018--and a huge chrysanthemum.

NO BUSINESS 100 ULTRA TRAIL RACE (updated October 17th)

Offering a mere "congratulations" is hardly adequate for what Chris Boyle accomplished this weekend.  Chris finished the 100-mile No Business 100 Ultra Trail Race in the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area in southern Kentucky and northern Tennessee.  Making the accomplishment far more impressive, though, is that the course included a monumental 15,000 feet of climbing. 

Chris finished 7th overall, in 26:08:33.  Only 39 of 96 starters reached the finish line before the 33-hour cutoff. 

With this finish, Chris became the first-ever Lake-area runner to complete a 100-mile race.  It was twice as far as he had ever raced before, and gives him more ultramarathon finishes than any other local runner.

Unfortunately, Ryan Maher, who lives in St. Louis but is a frequent visitor to the Lake, only made it to the 40.5-mile mark before dropping out.

Complete results can be found here.

HIGH SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY MEET RESULTS FOR OCTOBER 13TH (posted October 13th)

The Osage High School cross country team went up against some tough St. Louis area and mid-Missouri teams on Saturday at the St. Francis Borgia High School Invitational in Washington, Missouri.   Chase Grosvenor and Micah Hill were the top runners for Osage. Chase finished in 17:49 (15th of 133) and Micah in 21:30 (6th of 63). Ryan Page ran an even 20:00:00 and placed 88th.

The girls placed second (of six) in the team competition. The boys placed 12th (of 20).

BEAR CREEK RUN (posted October 13th)


Two runners from the Lake area were among the 187 who did the fifth annual Bear Creek Run trail half marathon in Columbia on Saturday.  The first to finish was Vickey Clark of Camdenton, who crossed the line in 2:16:12, and placed 7th (of 26) in the women's 40-49 age group.  Danny Stoelting of Osage Beach finished in 2:43:35.  He was third (of three) in the men's 60-and-over age group.

ADVENTUREMAX SPRINGFIELD HALF MARATHON & 10K (posted October 13th)

Dan Robertson was our sole Lake-area runner at the AdventureMax Springfield trail race in Highlandville on Saturday.  Dan finished the half marathon in 2:40:50 and took fourth place (of five) in the men's 55-59 age group.

Former Lake-area runner Andy Goessmann ran the half in 1:51:14.  Andy finished 8th overall, and 3rd (of six) in the 30-34 age group.

Another familiar name in the results was that of Jani Tucker of Lebanon, who won the women's 50-54 age group (over three others) with a 2:25:29 finish.

The complete race results can be found here.

Participation was down slightly from last year.

HARTFORD MARATHON (posted October 13th)

Don't know why, but Bill Pauls of Camdenton DNF'd at the Hartford Marathon on Saturday.  Bill reached the 20-mile mark at 4:23:25, but stopped somewhere before the 25-mile mark.  He's on the verge of completing a 50-state marathon quest for the second time, and needed a Connecticut finish. 

Bill holds the Lake-area record for being the oldest to finish a marathon.  He completed one in May at the age of 68.

GIVE 'EM THE BIRD 5K RUN, 1-MILE WALK & KIDS RACE (posted July 31st)

Versailles Total Fitness' eighth annual Give 'Em The Bird 5K run/walk and 1-mile walk, plus a quarter-mile race for kids, will be held on Saturday, November 3rd.  It will start at 9:00 a.m. at Versailles Total Fitness at 131 N. Monroe in downtown Versailles.  As in previous years, proceeds from the event will go to Food for Morgan County to help local families in need during the holiday season.

Give 'Em The Bird has the biggest "wow" factor of any 5K in the Lake area, including a live radio broadcast and music by race co-sponsor KS95.1, a live singing of the national anthem, the Second Baptist Church choir singing on the church steps along the course route, plenty of course support from the police, firefighters, and volunteers along the closed course, chip timing, really nice technical t-shirts, and a fun race for kids. This race really is the Super Bowl of Lake-area 5Ks, and it perennially attracts a big field with some of the fastest runners in the area. 

Registration is now open online, or you can download a registration form to mail to or drop off at Versailles Total Fitness.   The entry fee is $25 if you register on or before October 26th.  The fee rises to $35 beginning October 27th.  T-shirts can only be guaranteed to those who register by October 13th

The quarter-mile kids run will follow the 5K and 1-mile events.  There's no entry fee, but also no t-shirt, for participants.  They will, however, receive finishers ribbons.

LAKER 5K TURKEY TROT (posted October 19th)

One of our biggest and most enjoyable local races, the Laker 5K Turkey Trot, will return for its ninth year on Thanksgiving Day.  The race starts at 9:00 a.m. at Camdenton High School.  Race-day registration opens at 7:30 a.m. 

The entry fee for those who pre-register is $20.  On race day, the fee rises to $25..  Only those who pre-register by November 9th will be guaranteed a t-shirt on race day.

All proceeds from the event go to Lake area food pantries.  Runners are also encouraged to bring canned or boxed food items for the pantries.

Be sure to stick around for the pie-eating contest after the race to see who's willing to embarrass themselves for a chance at a few seconds of glory.

RUNNING OF THE ELVES 5K RUN/WALK (posted October 15th)

4 FORE 30 (posted December 4th) 

A new and unconventional running race is coming to the Lake area in December 2018. The 4 Fore 30 (Facebook page) will be held at Lake Valley Golf & Country Club west of Camdenton, and will benefit Kids Harbor.

The race is much more a test of physical and mental endurance than speed.  Beginning at 6:00 a.m. on December 1st, competitors will run a four-mile course on the golf club's cart paths, and have one hour in which to complete it.  (Failure to complete a lap within sixty minutes will end your race.)  Runners begin another lap at the top of each hour until either the last remaining runner stops, or 30 hours have elapsed, whichever comes first.   Thus, runners could race as few as four miles, or as many as 120.

Registration is limited to 100 participants.   Registration and more race details are available here.
