2017 Roots N Blues Training Program- Brought to you by Endurance Comapny

This may be your first race or your hundredth race. Whatever your skill level, this training plan will help you achieve your goal. Before you begin this training program, ask yourself: What is my goal? Why do I want to train? Is it to cross a ½ marathon off of your bucket list: Is it to beat your personal best? Is it to manage your weight? To spend time with friends? Decide why YOU are training so we can understand what you would like to accomplish and how we can help you get the most from this program. Happy training everyone!

2017 Participant Guide

The 2017 Roots N Blues N BBQ 1/2 Marathon and 10k in less than a week away!  Attached you will find the 2017 participant guide, which is also available at the race website.  It contains information on packet pick-up, parking on race day, the schedule of events, and awards, among other things.  

Weather for next Saturday is looking good. With cooler temperatures and a low chance for rain, it should be a PR type of day!

We are excited to see you at packet pick-up at Tryathletics (1605 Chapel Hill Rd, Columbia MO 65203) from Noon until 6:00 PM both Thursday and Friday.  If you can't make that we do have a day of race option at Stephen's Lake Park from 6:00 am-6:45 am, although we encourage you to use the Thursday or Friday pick up times.

We are once again excited to have Buckingham's Smokehouse providing our BBQ for the event.


We would like to thank all of our sponsors who make the race a success and we can't wait to see you!
