The News-Leader 5K (3.1 miles) is great for both runners and walkers who want to have fun while achieving their fitness goals. This is the perfect race to do with family members and friends!
All participants receive an event shirt, passed out during our two day Expo, which will take place at the John A. and Genny Morris Conservation Center.
The 5K shares the last 3.1 miles of the Bass Pro Conservation Marathon and the Cohick Half Marathon routes. Participants in the News-Leader 5K will complete their race before most of the half marathoners enter this part of the course. The route takes participants through the neighborhoods behind the Bass Pro Shops store. There will be one aid station along the way with water and Powerade for participants.
A great finish line waits for all 5K finishers, along with a medal to celebrate your accomplishment!
