Informazioni Run for the Ranch

Run for the Ranch began in 1999 as a fund raiser for the Good Samaritan Boys Ranch, Ozark Mountain Ridge Runners, and other local charities. The event is held annually on the last weekend of the year and is traditionally one of the last chances to Marathon in the United States.

When the organizers of Springfield’s annual Good Samaritan Run for the Ranch Marathon & Half Marathon say the race follows a loop course through the city, they mean an unusually tight loop course, one that runners in the half marathon run four times and those in the full, 26.2-mile marathon run no fewer than eight times before reaching the finish line.
