October 22nd's Gumbo Flats Pumpkin 5K and 10K will serve as the 2016 USATF Ozark Association's Long Distance Running (LDR) Championships!  Both courses are USATF-Certified, flat, and fast, which makes them ideal for the annual Championship event.  USATF Ozark Association members who compete will be scored in the overall Gumbo Flats results - and also eligible to be included in the results for the USATF "race​s​within the races."  Medals will be awarded in the USATF races​ using the same 5-year age groups as the Gumbo Flats races.
