On May 14, 1804, Lewis & Clark and their Corps of Discovery set sail from St. Louis to travel the Missouri River and explore the west, setting the stage for westward expansion. Run the Missouri is a virtual running and walking challenge that follows their journey across the state of Missouri, traveling along the Missouri River from St. Louis to Kansas City. You'll virtually traverse 371 miles of the Lewis & Clark National Historic Driving Route, which runs along the north bank of the river. To commemorate your personal expedition, you'll receive by mail your choice of a soft cotton tee or a technical singlet - and a custom medal!
Your goal is to log any miles you travel on foot and try to cover all 371 miles before the end of October. Every time you log a journey into the Run the Missouri online system, you will see your location along the virtual course (complete with street view images!) and your position on the mileage leaderboard. You don't have to be a tech wizard to participate; you'll receive instructions on how to log your miles and view your progress on the web or via the mobile app.
Register now and join us for the most unique and motivating virtual event of the summer!
