You may wonder why we call our company Ha Ha Racing Events. "Ha Ha" comes from Ha Ha Tonka State Park–home to our very first race in 2018, the Ha Ha Half Marathon. Ha Ha Tonka State Park is located at Lake of the Ozarks in central Missouri. Since then, our company has grown to four races. Soon we'll add ultra distances. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to me at


Be well,

John Shelby, race director
