Fitness Series Training Runs

The Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series provides two training runs during the summer months. These are free training runs to anyone and we provide hydration and snacks once you are finished. You can run any distance you wish or we have a couple routes that you can complete. 

  • Recycle Run, will be on July 27, 2024  at 6AM. This is a FREE fun run with no registration required! The event starts and ends at the front of the Bass Pro Shops parking lot on Campbell Avenue.  Pick a distance which you would like to run/walk or choose one of ours.  Our 6 mile out and back course has an aid station at the halfway point. Once you complete your distance, join us at the finish line, enjoy some goodies and choose from recycled medals and shirts from previous events.


Ozarks Mountain Ridge Runners

OMRR, our local running group, offers training groups for several Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series events, including all Marathon Weekend and Dogwood Canyon Trail Run distances.  This is free to anyone who wants to complete one of the Fitness Series events.  The training will consist of a 16-week plan, suited to your goals.  Training includes a morning group run every weekend.  OMRR will set pre-mapped routes with water stops to accomodate your training goals.  Get ready to meet some new friends and training buddies!  Check out the OMRR Training Page for 2024 training details- every distance has a plan!

  • Location of Training Runs: There will be a calendar for participants to download and follow.  Even out of town people can follow along virtually with us. Training runs will take place at various locations around Springfield.  Each week the route with a map will be added to the Facebook site.  Along with other helpful hints, tips and tricks to make sure you cross the finish line!  We will guide you to your goal with advice on trianing, nutrition and everything in-between!
