The 14th Annual Ozark Greenways Adventure Race (OGAR) is a multisport endurance adventure race which features running, trekking, mountain biking, orienteering and paddling. All distances and the race itinerary are kept secret until race morning.
The Race Planning Committee is working very hard to make this year's OGAR one of the best OGAR's to date! Here are a few of the important things to help you get started planning to join in and have a great time in this year's race.
Bart and Rita have again volunteered to allow their Frisco Trail Mini Storage & Bike Depot be the Headquarters for this years race. Last year was our first year there and the accommodations were just outstanding for racers and organizers as well!
Entry categories are Duo and Quad teams of any gender mix and a choice of two different courses to participate on; a 'Long' course for experienced racers and a 'Short' course designed for the beginning or first time racer.
Great News, Fees are remaining the same low prices as last year: $115 per entrant on Long course, $60 per person for short course. Late registrations will be slightly more. See the details page for time lines and costs.
Registrations will be made using the GetMeRegistered site we used last year. Be sure to read the details page first and then use the link on the sidebar to take you directly to the 2013 Registration process.
The La Quinta Inn and Suites at 2445 N. Airport Plaza Ave., 417-447-4466, is very close to the race HQ and they have again offered up a special rate for participants. You will need to mention you are participating to obtain the discount.
Be sure to check this website from time to time for planning updates and/or additional race details!
If you bring a new sponsor of $1,000 or more to the race you will get a free entry into the category of your choice (duo or quad). Check with Monty Montgomery, Race Director for details on this -- RaceDirector-at-GreenwayRace.Org) ).
Why race in the OGAR?
Every bit of net income from this event is used to help the Ozark Greenways develop a comprehensive network of greenway trails in the Springfield community in Southwest Missouri. We appreciate your support in the past and hope you are able to join us again this year for a great adventure race.

Please note the posters are not as dark and mottled as shown in the photograph - we apologize
