WEEKEND EVENTS FOR SEPTEMBER 26 - 27

The Eldon Turkey Trot 5K that was scheduled for this Saturday has been cancelled

We'll be back to racing next weekend (hopefully) at the Pregnancy Help Center's Bridging the Gap 5K in Lake Ozark on October 3rd.

The Camdenton, Osage and Versailles high school cross country teams head west to Lake Pomme de Terre on Saturday for the Hermitage Invitational meet.

Garrett Mason and Clare Holmes, both of whom are 2020 Camdenton graduates who are now on the rosters for the Missouri University of Science and Technology's men's and women's cross country teams, may be beginning their college running careers on Friday evening at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar.  (SBU is hosting one of five races in the Great Lakes Valley Conference Triangular meet.)   I say "may be" because, due to the coronavirus, the meets are being limited in size to 80 runners in total, meaning that some team members from participating schools will not be attending.

Jefferson City:

Rock & Run 5K, Saturday

Springfield area:

Veterans Student Association's 22 a Day 5K, Saturday

Kansas City area:

Great Plains 10K, Sunday

St. Louis area:

Rockin' Rockwoods Trail Race (53K and half marathon), Greensfelder Park in Wildwood, Saturday
Kennedy's Kickin' Kawasaki 5K, Defiance (St. Charles County), Saturday

Tulsa, Oklahoma:

Tulsa Urban Adventure,(26.2M, 50M, 75M & 100M solo; 100M relay), Saturday (LOTO participants: Scott Page (100-miles) and Stacy Roberts (50 miles))   Gary Braman will be tagging along for support.)

GIVE 'EM THE BIRD 5K RUN, 1-MILE WALK & KIDS RACE (posted September 22nd)

The color of the Give 'Em The Bird t-shirts always matches the background color of the logo for that year's race, and with this year's race falling on Halloween, it's only fitting that this year's shirts will be orange.


Very Important!  To help minimize close contact to others at the race, there will be no race-day registration this year. If you want to participate, you'll have to sign up online, by mail, or in-person at Versailles Total Fitness prior to race day.


Versailles Total Fitness' tenth annual Give 'Em The Bird (Facebook page) 5K run/walk and 1-mile walk, plus a quarter-mile race for kids, will be held on Halloween (Saturday, October 31st).  It will start at 9:00 a.m. at Versailles Total Fitness (map) at 131 N. Monroe in downtown Versailles. 

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 Lake area and beyond.

This year's event includes a special guest appearance and performance by "The Voice" and "American Idol" country music artist Dexter Roberts

Registration is available 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 24th.  The fee rises to $35 from October 25th through 30th.  There will be no race-day registration this year.  Long-sleeved, technical t-shirts can only be guaranteed to those who register by October 9th

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.

HIGH SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY MEET RESULTS FOR SEPTEMBER 19th (posted September 20th)

Camdenton High School's cross country meet in Joplin was cancelled weeks ago, so Camdenton held a "Last- Minute Invite" meet at Ha Ha Tonka on Saturday, inviting Osage, Waynesville, Rolla and Pleasant Hill high schools.

Rolla runners took the overall individual boys and girls victories, as well as the boys and girls team victories. The top local finishers were John Markovitz from Osage (17:36; 3rd of 35 boys) and Cambrie Kowal from Camdenton (20:34; 2nd of 30 girls).

Complete meet results can be found here.
