This year the Panther Run goes virtual! While we will miss seeing all of you at Drury’s O’Reilly Event Center, the decision to go virtual was made in order to protect the health of Drury University students as well as you, our runners.

Runners will be able to participate in the 5K, 10K, and 15K divisions just like normal, running any day between Thursday, September 24th and Thursday, October 1st. Times can be uploaded to the Panther Run RaceJoy site ( A full list of finishers will be available at the close of the race and to ensure your time is included please be sure to upload your time by noon on Friday, October 2nd.

Additionally, this year we are adding a Family Fun Run/Walk rate, for those who just want to get out and move with their family or friends! There is no distance requirement, just get the family together and get a little exercise. Entry into the Family Fun Run/Walk requires a minimum of three participants.

For runners interested in participating in the Run Across Springfield series, an additional Run Across Springfield registration is required, and can be completed by clicking here.
