Welcome to Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series!

The Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series is a series of events sponsored by Bass Pro Shops and made possible by our dedicated community volunteers and our sponsors. Our mission is to celebrate health and wellness, outdoor adventures and wildlife conservation in the beauty of the Ozarks. Fitness Series events and programs are designed to include activities for people of all ages, backgrounds, fitness levels and areas of interest.  Proceeds from the Fitness Series are shared with local charities that align with the mission of the Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series and our Bass Pro Shops giving pillars.

2024 finds the Bass Pro Fitness Series celebrating its 18th year. Over 29,000 people participated in our events as runners, walkers, bikers, spectators and volunteers in 2023. Over the course of 17 years, we have impacted over 650,000 participants, volunteers, community and neighborhood groups, charities, spectators, businesses and organizations.  The Bass Pro Shops Fitenss Series is committed to helping our community achieve their fitness goals while connecting people with the beauty of the Ozarks.  With this in mind, we have chosen to pare down the event lineup for the 2024 season and celebrate the unique experiences we offer at our Bass Pro-affiliated properties.
