Olympic-style sports festival brings torch run to Springfield


SPRINGFIELD – Tonight,  the 35th annual Show-Me State Games Torch Run came to Springfield.

The event took place at the Cooper Tennis Complex. The stop in Springfield is the third stop in a 10-city statewide run. The torch run helps get the word out about Missouri’s Olympic-style sports festival, 

“So this is a perfect opportunity for a family to come to Columbia give their kids a great opportunity to compete or compete as an adult but it’s a safe environment, fun competition and you’re gonna be up against people from all over the state,” Anna Hargis said.

The 2019 games will take place in June and July.
