Start/finish is now located in the Sikeston sports & recreation complex west of the airport.  Plug 511 Campanella Drive into your GPS!  There will be ample parking when you arrive, and lots to do when you return.  If arriving on Interstate 55, take exit 67, turn left at the bottom of the ramp, and drive west on Malone Avenue for approximately 2 miles.  Turn right at Selma St. intersection and follow the signs.  Here's a map!
