The Bass Pro Conservation Marathon is a great race for first-time competitors looking for an event with a great course and first class amenities. Runners and walkers from all around Missouri and the world will participate in the Bass Pro Conservation Marathon.
The scenic marathon course starts at the flagship Bass Pro Shop store in Springfield, Missouri. Participants will run on a couple beautiful trails in addition to running through some historic and picturesque residential neighborhoods. Participants will run by Route 66 as they move through the downtown area of Springfield and past Missouri State University.
People run or walk marathons for many reasons including honoring someone special in their lives, meeting personal goals, or striving for personal health and fitness. A marathon is a personal challenge like no other and whether this is your first or your 20th marathon, we want this experience to inspire you just like your efforts inspire others.
