Bridge and Dam Races are held the last Saturday in March every year. Through the generosity of city of Lake Ozark, LOPD, Ameron, the Community Bridge and Camden County sheriff dept, we are able to offer one of the most beautiful, if not THE most beautiful road race courses in the region. All distances begin at the Scenic Overlook offering participants a spectacular view before beginning the race. Participants of all distances get to run across the closed dam and up Bagnell Dam Strip. 5k runners will turn around before the 242/Bus 54 intersection but all other distances will head down 242 and across the magnificent community bridge offering breathtaking views in both directions. Once across, half marathon and 25k participants will head into the beautiful neighborhoods and run along the exclusive Porta Cima golf club. Along the way, participants will enjoy beautiful lake views, spectacular homes while pushing themselves up and down the Ozark hills. The finish is fun and fast back down Bagnell Dam Blvd.
The 5k course could be the fastest at the Lake with a downhill start, flat crossing the dam, up the strip and back down the strip with a downhill finish!
The event began in 2015 and attracts participants from all over the region and often all over the US with an average of 15 states being represented.
Proceeds go to Lake of the Ozarks Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
