About This Activity

You will have an opportunity to purchase the Active Advantage Program.  Read the details of the program; it does have benefits worth exploring.  However, you are under no obligation to purchase this program and if you don't want it, please make sure that it does not end up in your cart.

If you encounter any problems with registration, please feel free to call Active.com at 1-877-228-4881; choose option 3.  Active is a great resource!

Daylight Savings begins on Sunday, November 2, the same day as our Conservation Marathon, Cohick Half Marathon, Mercy Marathon Relay and News-Leader 5K.  Please remember to turn your clocks back one hour.

Race Routes

All routes are relatively flat.  We live in the Ozarks, an area of the country with big hills and rolling hills; our events offer some rolling hills, but just enough to hold your interest.  The routes take all runners through Springfield, Missouri, whose full grandeur is best seen in the fall.  Our Conservation Marathon was named as one of the 50 most beautiful marathons by timetokickbutts.com.

We do offer pacing teams for our full and half marathons.  More information will be available about this benefit as we get closer to race day.


Please click the "Register Now" button and choose the Mercy Marathon Relay.  During registration you will be asked to create the team name and you will need to register yourself and all five of your team members.  You must enter a valid email address for each team member or they will not receive email updates from our staff.

Relay Rules

Remember, if you are a Business/Corporate Team, four of your five team members must work for your business.  If you are a coed team, you must have at least two males and two females on your team.
