Train for the health of it ... Race for the fun of it!

Message From the President - November 2017

Nothing but fun!

November has to be the best running month of the year!  The weather is cooling, the countryside is coloring, and a multitude of great events are planned for you.

OMRR will be highly visible during the Bass Pro fitness events.  Many of our members will be serving at our aid stations during Fitness Weekend and Dogwood Canyon, and of course many of you will run. It’s never too late to enjoy this event.  Don’t forget the OMRR photo just before the start. 

Another Southwest Missouri and OMRR tradition falls on Thanksgiving with the “Turkey Trot”. 

Your board has approved several Changes to the Runner of the Year program beginning in 2018.  Help us determine a new name and join us in meeting the competitive challenges of the new program.  For our younger area runners and members, the age restriction for our half marathon event has been lowered from age16 to age 13. 

Nominations for the Hall of Fame and Gerald Glass Award are being accepted.  Board member nominations are being accepted also. 

So, I will leave it with you! 

See you out there!
