417 Area Running Groups

There are so many excellent reasons to run with a group: motivation, fun, safety, fun, encouragement, fun, inspiration, fun, and did I say FUN!?! We are very fortunate to have lots of running groups to choose from in Southwest Missouri. - Morning. Evening. Short. Long. Slow. Fast. Weekend. Weekday.  Many have a “no one left behind” practice.  Here is a listing of running groups in the area. If we missed a group, let us know via!

Welcome to the New OMRR Site

Welcome to the new OMRR website! Over the next few days, we’ll be moving all of content from the old site ( to here. Once we’re sure we didn’t leave anything behind, the old site will be retired to the warehouse and you will be able to reach us through both web addresses.

The new site has a great new blog (you’re reading it), easy-to-filter event lists, a member directory, photo gallery, plus many of the great features you’re already used to.
If you have any feedback about the new site while we’re going through the move, please email We’re hoping you enjoy the new look!
