Running of the Squirrels 5k



Make plans now to join us on Saturday, May 17, 2014, for the 9th annual Running of the Squirrels.  Registration is now open!  You can register online, by mail, or at Ridge Runner Sports located at 3057 S. Fremont in Springfield, Missouri.  The start time is 8:00 AM for the 5K run, and the route starts and ends at the Marionville Elementary School (200 W. Odell Street).  This event will once again benefit the Marionville school band program.  See you at the starting line!

We had a great turnout for the 2013 race with over 400 participants.  Justin Hansen of Marionville set a new course record with a time of 16:16, and our overall female was Kim Reed of Brookline with a time of 17:32.  

The Marionville Band Boosters would like to thank everyone for making the 8th annual Running of the Squirrels a tremendous success!
