The Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series is a series of not-for-profit events sponsored by Bass Pro Shops and our dedicated community volunteers and sponsors. Our mission is to celebrate health and wellness, outdoor adventures and wildlife conservation in the beauty of the Ozarks. Our programs are designed to include activities for people of all ages, backgrounds, fitness levels and areas of interest. Proceeds from these events are shared by Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Ozark Greenways, Girls on the Run, Isabel’s House Crisis Nursery, Champion Athletes of the Ozarks, and our other local charities.
2022 finds the Bass Pro Fitness Series celebrating its 16th year. Over 28,000 people participated in our events as runners, walkers, bikers, spectators and volunteers in 2021. Over the course of 15 years, we have impacted over 475,000 participants, Outfitters, volunteers, community and neighborhood groups, charities, spectators, businesses and organizations.
