    Frisco Highline Run for Scouting Half Marathon & 5K

    The highline run began in 2004 as the Frisco Highline run for scouting. Mr. John Q. Hammons donated the space at the Marriott hotel for the first six races. The race headquarters was transfered to the CNH Reman building just beyond the trailhead, quite close the Marriott. Mr. Jack Stack, President of Springfield Manufacturing, donated his excellent location for the race. Tradition is that the run feature a grand marshal. Many famous marshals have attended including Mr. Hammons, Olympian Jason Pyrah, world mile record holder Jim Ryun, and Olympic cyclist & runner John Howard.

    The race is always run on the last Saturday in March, and is the first major run of the season. The course is historic, scenic, paved, flat, and fast. The small section north of Willard, MO is still unpaved with hard packed gravel. The course is heavily treed protecting from sun and wind. Many runners have set their personal records (PR) here.

    In the 1800s, two rail lines ran from Kansas City south towards Springfield. The lowline traversed the swampy area around Clinton, MO. The highline traversed a more easterly route. Due to annual flooding, the lowline was abandoned but the highline persisted for many years. It is now a rails to trails project passing through a beautiful part of the Missouri Ozarks. The highline run is out in back on this trail. An original frisco engine horn from the frisco museum is used for the start and to announce the finishers.
