Run Across Missouri: Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series is partnering with the GO! St. Louis Marathon and Family Fitness Weekend and the Hospital Hill Run Half Marathon to offer Run Across Missouri, an opportunity for runners and walkers to complete three half marathons in three different regions of Missouri. Simply register for and complete the half marathons associated with each event and you will finish the Run Across Missouri! 

The Go! St. Louis Half Marathon is April 8, the Hospital Hill Run Half Marathon is June 2 and of course, the Bass Pro Shops Cohick Half is November 4. If you cannot run all three but can complete two of the three, you can complete one event virtually.  There is an opportunity to register on each event page to choose a virtual option.  You will have two weeks within the actual event date to finish your virtual distance.  You will be sent instructions on how to upload your results so you can complete the series.

Run Across Springfield: We have teamed up with OneSolePurpose and the Care to Learn Panther Run to promote health and wellness and to raise money to meet local student needs by creating a new 5K run/walk series – Run Across Springfield.  This series provides participants with three unique race courses, each highlighting different areas of Springfield.

Run OneSolePurpose on September 8, the Panther Run on October 6 and the Bass Pro Shops News-Leader 5K on November 4.
