  • Where is the Barnabas Campfire run located?
    The 5K Run, 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk, and Camper Stroll will start and finish in Jordan Valley Park 635 E Trafficway St. Springfield, MO 65802.
  • What is your COVID contingency plan?
    The COVID-19 pandemic is ever-evolving and rapidly changing. As a result, we are focused on taking all reasonable measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We will adhere to the CDC and Greene County Health Department recommended guidelines. If health officials advise, we will move to a fully virtual event. If a completely virtual event is required, all registrations would be transitioned to the virtual option. As this is a fundraising event vital to completing our mission, no refunds or registration transfers will be given.
  • Will there be an awards ceremony?
    We will announce the winners of awards at 6:00pm and place them on a table by the stage. If winners who live locally are unable to receive their award on race day, we would ask that you pick them up at the Barnabas Springfield office. We will mail awards to out of area winners who do not pick up their award on race day.
  • How do I get my race packet?
    Packet pick-up will take place at the Barnabas Foundation office located at 2060 E Sunshine, Springfield, MO 65804 on Friday, March 4th 11:00am-6:00pm.
  • Can I have my race packet mailled?
    Yes! If you are not available to pick up your packet or would prefer to have it mailed, we are happy to mail your packet to you. The cutoff for race packet mail requests is February 15th. There will be a $10 fee to cover shipping costs.
