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.



Fall in the Ozarks means Cider Days, visiting pumpkin patches, hiking trips and Tour de Bass!

Volunteers Needed!

Each year, our events would not be possible without the help of our volunteers.  In 2021, we had about 700 outstanding individuals give their time to support our events in roles such as packet preparation, finish line amenity organization, aid stations and course ambassadors.  Those volunteer hours logged turn into charitable donations given back to local charities that serve those in need in our community. 

Join us as an individual, your family and friends, coworkers or as part of a student group to make a huge impact!   

We are currrently seeking volunteers for Tour de Bass October 2nd!


train hard. finish strong!

There are several local Ozarks area training groups to help you prep for your big race.  No matter if you are hitting the trails or the pavement, there is a group here for you!  Visit our training page to get all the latest information about local groups and meeting times here.
