Lake of the Ozarks, MO

The OGRE will take place on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at Lake of the Ozarks, MO.


ALL OGRE racers MUST have a Support Crew/Individual.  One Support Crew/Individual may elect to support multiple racers.

Your support crew/individuals will meet you at 3 Pit Stops located at approximately 50 miles, 87 miles, and 128 miles into the race.  For the safety of our racers, we ask support crews/individuals to keep off the course unless called to pick up their rider. 

Support crews/individuals will be given Pit Stop information and directions denoting where and when to meet their riders.  It would be a good idea for your support crew/individual to bring along a folding chair, snacks, personal music or book to read while waiting for their rider.

If your Support Crew would like to provide support for another racer, please Contact Us  and we will put you in touch with the racer requesting support.
