We are excited about the 6th Annual Go Big or Go Home Race/Walk that will be held in downtown Warrensburg, MO on Saturday morning, April 7, 2018.  Each year we try to add fun ways to make our Race/Walk an event that everyone from young to old can enjoy.  This year we plan to add a new opportunity for those that can’t, won’t, don’t or just say a 5K is too much for them.  Our answer to that is a Relay Team option that will be added to our race this year. Teams will consist of 6 that will run/walk just 1/2 mile each.  That should even be attractive to the non-athletic person or to the highly competitive teams that want to get that big trophy.  We will continue with our Individual entries, Teams of 6 or more entries, and now the Relay Team option.  We will also be bringing back our FREE Kid’s Run which will begin immediately after the last person finishes the 5K and each child will receive a ribbon.  We will also be providing our complimentary pancake breakfast to everyone and our fantastic Silent Auction along with our Raffle that both will have once again amazing items and our Country Store with all kinds of homemade goodies.  Every registered participant will receive a goody bag, full of nice items along with a race t-shirt, a medal will be provided to all finishers along with a bracelet.  We offer Trophies to the Largest Campus and Largest Non-Campus Team, and plaques to the  Fastest Team for large and small teams.  This year we will be adding a Trophy for the winner of the Relay Team category.   Our pre-packet pick up party will be held on Friday night from 6-9 pm at the Mule House, located at 130 West Pine Street.  They will also have entertainment and food and drink specials for you to enjoy.

Because of the fabulous support of our sponsors and participants we have been able to provide generous prizes and awards that none of which would be possible without them.  We offer prizes to our overall male and female runners 1st-4th place, our Youth Category both male and female of 15 and younger,  ages of 16-30, 31-49 and 50 and over.   We will continue this year to also offer our special prizes to people placing at different times of the race and what that means is, even if you don’t finish in one of the to top categories you may still get a special prize valued at $50 and also the random prize drawings.  Each participant will also receive a Forget Me Not flower to take home and enjoy!

In 2017 we once again were fortunate to partner with UCM Greek Life (and were part of their playbook) and we were happy to have Center Stage Academy of the Performing Arts dancers who entertained and led the runners in warm up exercises  prior to the race and the National Anthem was sung by Beth Anderson of Center Stage.  Our DJ, Chris Keith from Music for the Masses entertained the crowd before, during and after the race.  Our efforts raised over $20,000 for the Foundation that will allow us to continue our efforts to “Make a Difference in the Community” to honor Blaine’s memory and continue our efforts to grow entrepreneurs, promote youth sports and recreation and lend a hand up to those in need.  Our overall male winner was Ryan Cue and our overall female winner was Alaina Zanin.  Trophies were awarded to our Largest Campus Team which was  Team #7 from Greek Life and our Largest Non-Campus Team Trophy was awarded to Finey Yacht Club, from Creighton, MO.   Plaques were given to the Fastest Large Team (16-30) which was Greek Life Team 7 and our Fastest Small Team (8-15) was awarded to Greek Life Team 8.  We had 15 teams competing overall with over 300 registered participants, along with over 100 volunteers.  Our sincere thanks and appreciation goes out to all of our sponsors, volunteers, participants and supporters who were there cheering on everyone!!!
