Announcing the 3rd Annual Bridge and Dam Half Marathon, 5K and 10K being held on Saturday March 25, 2017! The race starts on Bagnell Dam and runs over the Community Toll Bridge onto MM and down Spring Creek Drive and back. This is a beautiful, scenic yet challenging course that will attract runners from all parts of the United States. The event promises to be a fun, exciting and anticipated event for the Lake! Lake of the Ozarks Fellowship of Christian Athletes will host the event and all proceeds benefit LOTO FCA. Sponsorhip spots are available. Race Crew volunteer spots are available.
There will be race day registration starting at 6:00 AM. It will be located close to the finish line. Start time is 7:30 AM for the half-marathon, 10K, and 5K.
We will have packet pick-up information soon.
Here are the permission waivers that must be filled out and brought with you on the race day.
There is a 3.5 hour time limit that the course is closed and the aid stations are available. However, the we may open sections of the course to let vehicles cross when there are large gaps in the participants and it is deemed safe. Participants must maintain at least a 14 minute per mile pace to make the course deadline.
What is the average temperature during this time of year?
Well, the AVERAGE temperature is mid-60s. However, that average could easily include 80 degrees as well as 35 degrees! The weather is just part of the fun. Like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get! The 10-day forecast for 2015 showed sunny and 61 but race day had SNOW! Runners are tough and can brave it all!
We are excited to have Lodge of the Four Seasons as our host hotel!! They are offering special group rates to those participating in the run! You can book your rooms directly by following this link.
Are walkers allowed?
We do not have a separate category for walkers, but many people can walk the half and 10K. Walkers must be aware of the 3.5 hour time limit. A minimum pace of 14 minutes per mile must be maintained to make the course.
Where is the best place for family and friends to cheer?
There will be places along the route for spectators to park. We ask that there is NO parking on the shoulder of the road. We are keeping one lane of traffic open to allow for spectators to meet their runners at different locations along the route so we will need to utilize the shoulder to ensure maximum safety.
Is the course(s) hilly?
Lake of the Ozarks is hilly, so you will definitely encounter some hills! Train for hills once a week, and you will be running over those hills like you’re Rocky Balboa in a training montage!
Do you have a Gear Check area?
This information coming soon.
Can I wear headphones, push strollers or bring my dog?
Jogging strollers (no walking) will be allowed. Headphones are strongly discouraged for safety reasons Animals are not allowed on the course unless they are assisting visually impaired participants.
