    Springfield MO's Saturday Morning Bike Ride

    Most great cycling cities have a regular Saturday morning ride that people know they can always show up to and jump in. Springfield, MO now has one, starting in the Spring of 2018.

    This mid-paced 50 miler is a ride intended/designed for: a) those cyclists who are ready to move up from the various beginner, no-drop rides; b) those looking to regain some fitness before riding with more aggressively paced groups; c) maybe some of those folks looking for an easier 50 on a given Saturday; and d) for folks who want to learn to ride in a pace-line.

    Run Galloway

    Training to run a full or half marathon is a challenge – one that Jeff Galloway, a former Olympian and fitness expert, can help with.

    It all starts on April 24, when Galloway will speak in Springfield. After that, participants will meet at Sequiota Park every Saturday at 7:30 a.m. through Oct. 27. They’ll be introduced to the Galloway technique as the program progresses, which involves a special combination of running and walking.

    While the fundamental purpose is to simply become a better runner, another goal is to prepare for the Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series half and full marathon, which in 2018 is scheduled for November 4.
