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 29, the Jefferson City Athletic Events Committee is going to give you that opportunity with the Prison Break! Racers will emerge from the prison's old baseball field and 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.
2020 Registration opens on May 1.
