Join us for this year’s Campfire 5K, 1 Mile Fun Run, and Camper Stroll benefiting Camp Barnabas. You won’t want to miss this fun event supporting individuals with special needs and chronic illnesses.

Run, walk, or volunteer on Saturday, March 6th. This evening event kicks off with a 1/10 mile Stroll for our campers and other individuals with special needs. Runners and volunteers will cheer on Stroll participants and award them each a medal. Immediately following the Stroll, 5K and 1 mile participants will set out on the trail through downtown Springfield.

Whether you’re a lumberjack or a lumberjill, you’re sure to have a great time! Themed attire is strongly encouraged with prizes given for the best costumes. We’ll supply the beards, but keep an eye out for the bears.


Camper Stroll - 5:00 pm
5K Run - 5:15 pm
1 Mile Fun Run Immediately following 5K start
