About this event

CoxHealth Medical Mile and 5K is the longest held mile and 5k race in the Ozarks that 100% benefits CoxHealth Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and the families they serve right here in the Ozarks. This unique race continues to be a huge opportunity for our community to help children and families in need each day. MedMile is put on each year in conjunction with CoxHealth Fitness Centers in Springfield and continues to grow each year.

CoxHealth is proud to present our 31st Anniversary Medical Mile and 5K Run/Walk! This virtual event brings 600+ virtual participants each year in which 100% of proceeds supports Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and the local families they serve!

Enjoy supporting this event by run, walking, skipping or hopping at your pace and choice of place! Complete your choice of distance anywhere between June 1-19th! This event is not only a great way to show your support to the children and families in need but is also a much needed opportunity to benefit physically and mentally!
