Join us for the 9th annual OneSolePurpose 5K/10K Run and 1-Mile Fun Walk

Date: September 7, 2019
Location: High Street Baptist Church
900 N Eastgate Springfield MO
Time: 8:00 Start time for all events

Since 2010 OneSolePurpose has given away over 20,000 pairs of new shoes to students here in the Springfield area. Our 5K/10K run is one of our biggest fund raisers. Thanks to our generous sponsors, your registration fee is used 100% for the purchase of new shoes. You run and a local student will receive a new pair of shoes. That is a Win-Win right there.


Packet pickup is Friday September 6th from 10am-6pm and Saturday September 7th from 6:30am-7:30am at High Street Baptist Church. We encourage everyone to try and pick up on Friday. 

Different payment options available for runners:

  • Two pricing options for registering. You can forgo getting a shirt and pay a discounted price or pay the normal price and get the shirt. Pick wisely.

  • NOTE: The 1-mile fun walk starts at High Street, goes south to Chestnut Expressway and then back to the church.

This race offers the following:

  • Accurate course distances

  • Challenging courses in scenic Eastern part of Springfield. Courses are well-marked, with volunteers

  • Aid-Stations and Port-A-Potties along 5K/10K Routes

  • Post run water and snacks for runners

  • Awards for top three finishers in the following age divisions:

    • 14 and under

    • 15-19

    • 20-29

    • 30-39

    • 40-49

    • 50-59

    • 60-69

    • 70 and up

  • Trophy and prizes for top female and male finishers for both the 5K and 10K & Master's Division (40+)

  • The team with the most paid participants will receive a trophy and a prize for every member of the team. Team members must consist of at least 75% runners. Be sure to fill in the team section of the registration form if you are participating on a team.

OneSolePurpose is partnering with Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series and Care to Learn to bring you the 2nd Annual Run Across Springfield Race Series. This is an opportunity for runners and walkers to complete three different Springfield signature events, all of which support local charities. This year you may enter and complete the distance of your choice in each event. You must register for each event separately. When you go to each website to register, make sure that you select the Run Across Springfield option. If you do not select this registration category, you will not receive the extra amenities. Everyone who completes the series will receive a Run Across Springfield finishers medal and commemorative t-shirt at the conclusion of their Bass Pro Shops Marathon Weekend event. Sponsored by Rick's Automotive and Atlas Security, these events help keep our community members active while supporting local children. Choose the Run Across Springfield 5K Series when registering.
