Fleet Feet Gift Cards
Weekly drawings for a $25 gift card to Fleet Feet! These random drawings will be conducted weekly beginning the first week in November and ending the last week before race week. A total of eight gift cards will be handed out. Only registered entrants will be included in the drawing and yes, you can win more than once.
Cool and Comfortable Race Shirts
"Last year’s tshirt is my absolute favorite shirt in the world." That quote comes from one of our runners in reference to the 2019 Trail of Four Winds 25K race shirt. The Ha Ha Half will be the same style shirt–cool and comfortable. We'll have a logo reveal soon! This shirt is advertisement free and will look great with shorts or jeans.
Every virtual finisher will receive a finisher's award with the same cool logo that's included on each race shirt. This award will capture the spirit and nature of Ha Ha Tonka State Park.
Every participant will be required to submit a file of their run. Your run must be at least 13.1 miles to receive a finisher's award–not 13.0 or less, but 13.1 or more. Your file must be labeled Ha Ha Half Virtual Run. You can not use one file for multiple races. You can run on any type of surface (we encourage soft trails), but you must have at least 1000 feet of elevation gain. Even though race day is Sunday, December 27, 2020, participants may submit files anytime from December 27, 2020 to Saturday, January 2, 2021.Your run must have occurred during that week. What a great way to end or start the year! Every paying participant will receive their race shirt even if they don't submit a file of their run. All finishers will also receive a finisher's award.
Ha Ha Half History
In 2018, we held a free event at Ha Ha Tonka State park called the Ha Ha Half. You'll find pictures of that event on our Facebook page, @HaHaHalfMarathon. While the park allows free group runs, they don't allow paid, sanctioned runs. We didn't know that at the time. That led to the decision to move the race to a new park. As a result, Trail of Four Winds 25K made its debut in 2019–new race, new distance, new name. It was a sellout, and an absolute blast. Now, Trail of Four Winds 25K is one of three races in the Lake of the Ozarks Trail Series.
2020 has been the year of race cancellations, postponements and virtual runs. This led to the decision to have one of the races in the Lake of the Ozarks Trail Series portfolio as a virtual race from the get-go. We hope you find it a useful tool in your motivational toolbox to help inspire you to log some miles through the holidays and have some fun. Perhaps run with a group of friends and log your race at the same time.
Make sure you follow us on our Facebook page, @HaHaHalfMarathon, for Fleet Feet gift card giveaways leading up to race day!
Be well, run strong.
