The News-Leader 5K (3.1 miles) is great for both runners and walkers who want to have some fun while achieving their fitness goals. This is a great race to do with family members and friends!
It shares the routes of the Bass Pro Conservation Marathon and the Cohick Half Marathon. Participants in the News-Leader 5K will complete their races before most of the half and full marathoners enter this part of the course. The route is mostly flat and takes runners through Springfield on gorgeous paths which are known for displaying beautiful Autumn foliage of the Ozarks during the Fall.
