9th Annual Prison Break Race

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to break out of a real prison? Or, what it would be like to stand in a place where convicts sat for years at a time without daylight, running water or contact with the outside world? If you’ve ever thought about any of that, chances are pretty good you’ve thought about how you would escape from that prison. On August 29th, the Jefferson City Athletic Events Committee is going to give you that opportunity with the Prison Break! Racers will set out on a 4+ mile course that will test every facet of their athleticism. Breaking out of prison isn’t easy, and this course won’t be either. Expect the unexpected – hilly terrain combined with a slew of obstacles will be featured at every turn before the conclusion. Must be 18 years or older. 

Time: Registration 7:00-8:00 am, Race 8:30 am - Noon

Location: Missouri State Penitentiary, 115 Lafayette Street

Cost: $40 per person includes t-shirt, mugshot photo and pizza slices
