The Priebe Strong 1062 race is now over after over 400 people ran in the Family Mile, the 5k, the 10k, and the half marathon.
The race was put together in support of Officer Mark Priebe, who was seriously injured this year and lost the use of his legs.
Governor Mike Parson helped kick off the event.
I was glad to help kick off the Priebe Strong 1062 run in Republic this morning. The run honored Springfield Police Officer Mark Priebe who was injured on duty earlier this year.
