A Boston qualifier, the Bass Pro Fitness Series Conservation Marathon is an excellent race for both first-time competitors and seasoned athletes looking for an event with a great course and first class amenities. Local, regional, national and international runners and walkers will participate in the Bass Pro Conservation Marathon.
Routes wind participants through many beautiful neighborhoods, several flat paved trails, part of historic Route 66, around Missouri State University and through downtown Springfield. The course is mostly flat with a few rolling hills. The event starts in front of the Granddaddy of all sporting goods stores, Bass Pro Shops, and ends in front of our new Wonders of Wildlife Museum and Aquarium, connected to the John A. and Genny Morris Conservation Center.
People run or walk marathons for many reasons including honoring someone special in their lives, meeting personal goals or striving for personal health and fitness. A marathon is a personal challenge like no other and whether this is your first or your 50th marathon, we want this experience to inspire you just like your efforts inspire others.
Remember, this event could be part of your Run Across Missouri or Run Across Springfield Challenge! As you register, select that option to ensure you are registered in one or both of these challenges/series.
