Running was popular in Europe long before it caught on in America, which is why most races are measured in kilometers instead of miles and why most of the Pilgrims were eaten by bears.

Sand Spring River Race’s Rough Run challenges legs in a 10-kilometer course peppered with a diverse set of obstacles to keep body heat up against the predicted brisk weather. The course is family-friendly, ensuring that moms, athletic kids, and persistent painted turtles alike can participate in the fun. Meanwhile, the Sand Spring River Race’s main event is a scenic adventure race, 25–30 miles, launching from the Riverfront Campground on the Niangua River. Mountain biking, running, paddling, and a mystery event blend seamlessly together as participants immerse themselves in natural splendor. A trail run, 8–10 miles, guides lopers through the colored leaves of autumn, and racers propel knobby tires over rough terrain during 12 miles of mountain biking. The 6–8 miles of paddling requires strength, cooperation, and diplomacy with local trout delegates on the slithering Niangua River. Depending on the team’s speed and prowess, the race can last anywhere from three–eight hours as duets scramble through their leafy surroundings. A mandatory prerace meeting takes place at 8:35 a.m. on race day, and teams must provide their own mountain bikes, though the race lightens the load by providing all paddling equipment and nature.

Riverfront Campground & Canoe

Along the pristine waters of the Niangua River, banked by lush, green foliage and colorful, mature trees, visitors and locals leisurely float in kayaks, rafts, and canoes supplied by the team at Riverfront Campground & Canoe. The staff is eager to share its passion for the outdoors and the splendor of the Missouri Ozarks with visitors to their more than 200 acres of scenic campsites along Niangua's riverfront. The sites welcome families and friends to pitch a tent or pull up in their RVs for a tranquil experience hiking nature trails, swimming, tubing, and sleeping under the stars to the soundtrack of a rushing river. To assure campers enjoy a comfortable stay, the grounds are equipped with hot showers and bathrooms, as well as a convenience store stocked with snacks, beverages, bait, tackle, and Bigfoot repellent.

Friendly hosts who answer the phone! Beautiful, newly re-done campground, Great stretch of the Niangua for young families: nothing too crazy. Go mid-week for a quiet time.
