"We have taken everything people love about a trail relay and thrown it for a loop, actually three loops!  It is the first, BaseCamp relay in Missouri Wine Country," said Kerin Miller, Race Director for MO' Cowbell and Cowbell Uncorked: OFF ROAD.  The race is organized by the civic group Partners for Progress in cooperation with Big River Running Company. "Cowbell Uncorked: OFF ROAD is 'the' running experience of 2015!  It combines the challenge of distance running and the excitement of an all-day tailgate."

Each teammate will run a 10K loop and two 5K loops, completing a total of 12.4 miles.  OFF ROAD is capped at 200 teams and registration is now open.  Registration fee is $400 per five-person team. Prices increase after March 1. 

Every runner will receive a short-sleeve technical-race shirt, a commemorative wine glass, a finisher's medal, access to lots of amenities and activities within the BaseCamp, race support and medical stations provided by Mercy Sports Medicine, and hundreds of volunteers and spectators cheering for them.

"The BaseCamp will be 'the' place to be that Saturday for both the runners and the general public," Miller said. "We will have health and fitness-related exhibitors, food trucks, wine tasting, foam rolling and yoga sessions, massage therapy, live music, camp games and much more at our all-day tailgate."

Headlining sponsor for the 2015 Cowbell Uncorked: OFF ROAD is Mercy Sports Medicine.
