PLAZA 10K (posted September 14th)

The Lake area was represented by four runners at the Plaza 10K in Kansas City on Saturday (September 13th).  This is the largest 10K in the state, with 3,317 finishers at Saturday's race, and it attracts an amazingly fast field.  The overall male winner crossed the line in 30:05--a pace of 4:51 per mile--with the next two males crossing 5 seconds later.  The overall female winner was Kimi Reed, in 35:16--just one second ahead of her closest competitor.  (Kimi won last November's Bass Pro 5K.)

9/11 FREEDOM RUN 5K (updated September 14th)

The firefighters of the Lake Ozark Fire Protection District put on a wonderful 5K on Saturday (September 13th) in Lake Ozark.   The first annual 9/11 Freedom Run was a tribute to the 343 New York City firefighters who lost their lives in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Proceeds from the event will go toward the firefighters' "Shop With a Fireman" program, which takes underprivileged kids shopping for school supplies and Christmas gifts in a fire truck.

The event started with a short ceremony honoring those who died.  In addition, every runner and walker was given a badge containing the name and photo of a fallen firefighter to wear during the event.

Left: Members of the Magic Dragon Pipes & Drums played a tribute to the FDNY firefighters. Right: One of the badges worn by each of the runners and walkers during the event.

Fifty-five runners and walkers, including four firefighters who walked while dressed in full gear, participated in the event.

Pre-race instructions being given to the participants.

The inaugural race gave us two first-time Lake-area 5K winners. Scott Page led the men and finished in 22:39, and took home the most original and memorable race award in memory--a replica fireman's helmet emblazoned with the race logo.  On the women's side, Jennifer Newman crossed the line (in her cool-looking brand-new pair of Reeboks) in 27:22.

ST. ANTHONY'S RUN FOR HOPE 5K RUN/WALK (updated September 6th)

St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Camdenton will be holding the Run for Hope 5K color run/walk on Saturday, September 27th, at the Linn Creek City Park.  (Last year, this was called the "Racing the Roof 5K".)  A one-mile fun run will also be held for kids 12-and-under. 

Update:  Proceeds from this year's event will benefit five local charitable organizations, including Helping Hands Homeless Shelter; Lamb House food pantry; Habitat for Humanity; Medical Missions for Christ; and Citizens Against Domestic Violence (CADV).

The one-mile fun run will start at 8:00 a.m.  The 5K will start at 9:00 a.m.  Race-day registration will open at 7:00 a.m. 

If you register by the September 19th pre-registration deadline, the entry fee is $20 for individuals (plus $15 for each family member, or $50 for a family of four or more).  The fee for kids 12-and-under is $10.  (T-shirts are only guaranteed for those who pre-register.)  After that date, the fee rises to $25 for individuals (and $20 for additional family members.)  Those donating or raising $100 or more will be entered into a special drawing for prizes.

Since this is a color run, you're reminded to wear a white t-shirt.  Wearing goggles, a bandana or dust mask is also recommended.

ZOMBIE 5K FUN RUN (posted September 9th)

The Eldon Middle School Wellness Committee is sponsoring a Zombie 5K Fun Run for both kids and adults on Saturday, October 11th. The event starts at the Eldon Aquatic Center on N. Franklin St. at 4:00 p.m., with race-day registration and packet pick-up beginning at 3:00 p.m.

The event is free to all Eldon students from grades K through 12.  All others pay $20 if registering on or before the pre-registration deadline of September 26th, and $25 thereafter.  Only those who pre-register can be guaranteed t-shirts.

Race participants under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Click to download a registration form.

So, how will the zombie run work?  In short, every runner will be given three flags to wear, and "zombies" (i.e. school staff and supervised students) stationed along the 5K course will attempt to capture those flags.  Losing a flag to a zombie will result in one minute being added to a runner's finish time.

The race will end at Eldon Middle School's cross country field.  Hayrides and/or buses will take participants back to their vehicles at the pool.

A benefit for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) research is being held this fall in memory of Grace DeGraffenreid, a seven year-old from Eldon who passed away on February 21st.   The Grace DeGraffenreid Memorial 5K & Kids Fun Run will be held on Saturday, October 11th, at Memorial Park (map) in Jefferson City. The 5K starts at 9:00 a.m., and the kids fun run at 10:15 a.m.

The kids fun run is free for children 12 and under, and doesn't include a t-shirt (although kids' t-shirts can be purchased for $10). Medals, however, will be awarded to all kids fun run participants.

The entry fee for the 5K is $25 ($10 for children 12 & under) for those who register on or before September 1st.  After that date, the fee increases to $30 for adults.  T-shirts will only be guaranteed for those who pre-register.  All others will receive t-shirts while supplies last.

Versailles Total Fitness' fourth annual Give 'Em The Bird 5K run, 1-mile walk and kids' quarter-mile fun run will be held on Saturday, November 1st.  It starts at 9:00 a.m. at Versailles Total Fitness at 131 N. Monroe (course map).  As in previous years, proceeds from the event will help local families in need during the holiday season; last year's event raised $6,000 for Food for Morgan County.

Give 'Em The Bird has the biggest "wow" factor of any 5K in the Lake area.  Last year's race, for instance, included a live radio broadcast and music by race co-sponsor KS95.1 at the start/finish line, a live singing of the national anthem, a live musical group performing in front of the Morgan County courthouse, the Versailles High School cheerleaders cheering along the course, and plenty of course support from the police, firefighters, and volunteers.  To top it off, the kids fun run was the cutest race we watched all year.  Still not convinced you want to go?  Watch this.   

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 31st, or $35 on race day.  T-shirts can only be guaranteed to those who register by October 15th

There's no entry fee, but also no t-shirt, for participants in the kids fun run.  Participants will, however, receive finishers ribbons.
