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

Bass Pro Training - Ready! Set! Go!

It’s getting to be that time of the year again - BASS PRO TRAINING! 

OMRR is offering training plans and organized training runs to members for FREE.  Non-members are invited to participate in the training as well, at a cost of $20.  This fee can be paid online or in person at a training run.

There are 2 options for training - a “Basic” plan designed for those who are doing their first half or full and an “Advanced” plan designed for those who are more experienced with the half or full distance.

Training for the Conservation Marathon will begin on July 12, with the first group training run on July 18.

Training for the Cohick Half Marathon will begin on August 9, with the first group training run on August 15.

OMRR will send out a weekly training email with training tips as well as the location and time of the training run for the week.

PR Corner - April Races

It’s PR-ty time!  When you enter race data into the site you can flag it as a PR.  Each month we will have a random gift card drawing - for every 10 PR’s entered into the race site we will give away 1 gift card. 

In April, we had a whopping 40 PR’s entered into the site - this means we are giving away 4 gift cards for those who got a PR in April.

The winners are Denise Ussery (PR at Glad Top), Allyn Wollard (PR at Camp Barnabas), Sharon Hendrix (PR at Go Girl Springfield), and Joel Alexander (PR at Frisco 50K). 

Way to go!!  Send an email to and let us know if you would like a Bass Pro, Ridge Runner Sports, Ultramax, Subway, or Starbucks gift card.

For more information or to see the great accomplishments of our members, check out the PR Corner under the Programs menu.

Dues Increase

Effective June 1, 2014, dues for membership in the Ozark Mountain Ridge. Runners will be changed to the following:

Dues for membership in the Ozark Mountain Ridge Runners will be $20 per year for the first member of a household. Each additional member of the household will be $5 per year with a maximum of $40 per household. A household will be defined as individuals living at the same physical address. 

If you are paid past June first this won’t affect you until your due date. For instance, if you are paid through September, that’s when the new rate will affect you. If you have two household members currently paying separately, the new due date will be effective off the first person.

This is necessary as many of our costs are going up such as taxes, insurance, the costs of our events such as the picnic, races and banquet. We are also looking to continue improving our two signature events. That was also the biggest factor in the newsletter print edition going from monthly to quarterly.
