Moore War Run Route

 This 5K run through downtown Moore benefits the scholarships for all three high schools. This run is sanctioned by the USATF and timed with ChampionChips. Sign up to run or to volunteer at moorewarrun.com.

Since 1988, Lions and Jaguars have sparred against one another in a race to determine the big cat in town. When it comes to Moore War, rivalries run deep and emotions run high. Each August, alums from Moore and Westmoore, as well as members of the community, put aside their differences to come together for a common cause–current students.
