This race is part of our Run Across America - 50 State Challenge - a series of races designed to give you an experience like no other. Each medal is designed with care to showcase one of the most fabulous icons of each state. As you run each race, you'll start building your collection of full-colored bib with matching medal - something you will want to keep as a memory of what you can accomplish as a runner, a walker, or any combination of the two.
For this race we showcase a part of Missouri that is known the world over! In many ways, as that Gateway to the West (or East?) will tie together all our races and states with a vision towards the unity we have in this amazing country! We love the dedicate spirit that comes from Missouri's state nickname, the "Show Me State" with a drive and dedication like no other.
Each of our races in this series will come out every few weeks (you you checked out our California run yet?) so we can get the momentum moving forward and get your closer to completing all 50 States in our challenge. Bear with us as we get started, knowing that our second state is just around the corner. You won't want to miss it as that medal is yet another beauty in the series!
For those that complete all 50 states, you will receive a commemorative medal that shows you went the full distance, accomplishing what few people have done, by running across all 50 states. That medal will be sent to you at no charge (including shipping) as our congratulatory gift to you for finishing your race. While others are completing "50 Marathons in 50 States" you can relish in your accomplishment and show off your shiny new medal to any that come in your path.
