Springfield Urban Warrior Challenge
In the early hours of the morning, runners line up to dash through the streets, across the bridges, and along the train tracks of Springfield in a rigorous race designed by the Missouri State University Army ROTC. Along the demanding 12.4K course, runners encounter more than a dozen obstacles that make use of the city’s landscape, carefully hurdling over an urban mine field and breaking codes to advance in the event. At the conclusion of the race, participants with winning times receive awards. A portion of the proceeds go toward the National Military Family Association, a nonprofit organization that assists military members and their families with emotional and financial support.
