For Immediate Release

Adventure Race Registration Opens March 1

The 13th Annual Ozark Greenways Adventure Race returns to the Ozarks Saturday, May 12. This year's multisport race is coming to our own backyard, headquartering out of Ozark Greenways' Willard Trailhead on the Frisco Highline Trail.

The Adventure Race offers a short-course (3-4 hours) or a long course (6-10 hours) for two- or four-person teams competing together in mountain biking, running, canoeing, orienteering and more. The real adventure is in the itinerary and race distances, kept secret until the morning of the race.

The event is popular among regional "weekend warriors" and has attracted team members from 25 states, as far away as California, Montana, New Hampshire and Florida. It's also the largest annual fundraiser for Springfield's trail network.
