    2015 Rock4Kids Running Series: Zombie Run/Walk - Bass Pro Outdoor Fitness Festival

    The more that kids walk, run, ride their bikes or take part in any physical activity, the more the message of health and wellness is integrated into our community.

    Kids in the Springfield area may take part in the Rock4Kids program by counting the times that they exercise, read a book and do the right thing (i.e., perform an act of kindness, volunteer, etc.). We are using the marathon distance as a concept for points. Kids will track 25 points over a period of time and complete the marathon concept by choosing a distance to walk or run in one of our events. They can turn their tracking sheets in on the morning of the Zombie Run. They do not have to complete the tracking forms to participate.

    Registration for this event will close at 11:59 PM Wednesday, October 21. We will reopen limited entry late registration at a slightly higher fee than regular registration costs during packet pick-up, allowing for in person, paper registrations as long as we have spots available. We will not be offering onsite registration the day of the event.

    Entry fee into this year's Zombie Run also provides entry into the Rutledge-Wilson Farm Park's "Fall Festival"! Kids may run in their chosen distance and then partake in the corn maze, hayrides, bounce houses and more that day! All registered participants for the Zombie Run will be given a specially designed race shirt and medal to commemorate the event! Participating in the Zombie Run will be a great healthy way to spend a Fall day outside in the Ozarks!

    Race Distances: .25 miles, .50 miles, 1 mile, 1.8 miles; kids and other participants can choose their distance based on their age and skill level
