Trail of Four Winds 25K | The Course | 9 AM Start

Trail of Four Winds 25K travels through Lake of the Ozarks State Park, Missouri's largest state park. This is a heavy 25K. Runners experience several views of Lake of the Ozarks, rock outcrops, overlooks, seasonal streams, and woodlands. This will be a fun and fast track for many, but with all the obstacles one expects while running in the Ozarks–roots, loose rocks, slick surfaces, creek crossings, and steep grades of 10 percent or more. The trail fluctuates between single track, double track and wider–with 1600 plus feet of elevation gain spread throughout. The race starts/finishes at public beach #1 at Lake of the Ozarks State Park–a great location for our post-race trail fest. Enjoy the amenities of Lake of the Ozarks State Park, and the excitement of Lake of the Ozarks! 
John Shelby, race director​

LOZ Traverse | The Course | 7 AM Start

This is not a team event. Only one person per boat.

LOZ Traverse is 35 miles of challenging terrain within Lake of the Ozarks State Park, Missouri's largest state park. Competitors will start by running the Trail of Four Winds 25K course. Once competitors cross the Four Winds finish line, they will head to the beach transition area where they begin their first paddle (kayaks, canoes, SUPs) leg across the lake to the Honey Run side of the state park. Once beached, competitors will follow the road to the Honey Run trailhead where they will experience approximately 13 miles of enjoyable single track before running back to their boats to paddle back across the lake to the Four Winds side of the park. Once beached, competitors will have a short run up the hill to the finish line. Wandering Bobcat 5 Miler, Trail of Four Winds 25K and LOZ Traverse start and finish at the same location. If you want to experience Lake of the Ozarks State Park, this is the way to do it. Approximately 32 miles of running and 3 miles of paddling. Runners must provide their own kayaks/canoes or stand-up paddle boards and must wear a Coast Guard approved life jacket.
John Shelby, race director

3.5 hour cutoff to finish the Four Winds side of the course (overall 10 hour cutoff)
