The Show-Me State Games held its 5K, 10K and race walk event Sunday at Bethel Park. About 120 people competed in the event, which was delayed by an hour due to heavy thunderstorms early that morning.

Discussing why they volunteer, Kumar said, “because I hurt my ankle and couldn’t run.” Floros explained,” I want to be a race planner when I grow up.”
