For Immediate Release

Registration Now Open for Adventure Race

Registration is now open for the 11th annual Ozark Greenways Adventure Race through www.greenwayrace.org. Registration will fill up quickly for this popular race, to be start at 7 a.m., Saturday, May 22, at Gasconade Hills Resort in Richland, Mo., near Lebanon. One hundred percent of the race proceeds go to Ozark Greenways to continue development of Springfield’s growing public greenway trail network.

NEW! This unique event has previously been open only to coed teams of four, but this year the race will open to two-person teams and solo categories! Participants compete in an 8-14-hour multi-sport endurance race that includes running, mountain biking, orienteering, canoeing and mystery tests. The real adventure is that all the distances and itinerary are kept secret until the morning of the race!

This event has become very popular among regional “weekend warriors” and has attracted team members from as far away as California, Montana, New Hampshire and Florida!  We’ve had racers from 25 different states participate in this unique event in the Ozarks. Spectators are encouraged. Race description, volunteer information and a cool video synopsis can be accessed at the Ozark Greenways website.
