It is beautiful, hilly, rural country, but our course is almost entirely paved. We have a free Pasta Party in Salem at packet pick up; our post-race party is legendary; we are small enough to provide personal attention to each runner, walker, sponsor, and volunteer. Plan to join us! Experience fall in the Ozarks as you run, jog, or walk 26.2 miles of gently rolling hills in south central Missouri, in support of our military.
