The Joplin Roadrunners are a group of local runners of all ages and abilities. We meet on the second Thursday of every month to share our experiences, encourage one another, preview upcoming races and enjoy one another's fellowship. It is our goal to promote and foster running in the tri-state area. Check this Website for meeting locations and time.
Additionally, as some of you already know, there have been some incidents involving cars/people following runners or cars almost hitting runners/cyclists. Runners and cyclists that would like to report an incident involving a vehicle or person can do so on the following website: http://look4states.org/home.html
Of course, a good description and a license plate number will help the police immensely with the case.
First off, we have some very exciting news. TwelveOne Race Management has announced that they will be offering a $5.00 discount on all 2016 races for our 2016 Joplin Roadrunner members. This will be at least 30 plus events for $150 value! We will start taking membership dues in December 2016 so you can start taking advantage of these discounts ASAP. Additionally, we are asking that you renew your membership in December or January so that we can get an accurate number of shirts ordered. And of course, if you know anyone who is a runner and is not a part of JRR to please reach out to them and let them know what they are missing out on. If they have any questions please have them contact us. Also, if they would like to come check out one of our meetings please also invite them to do so.
Don't forget we have our Joplin Roadrunners 33rd annual Pumpkin Run 5 mile and 1 mile coming up October 10th! If you haven't signed up you can still do so online at www.redseafitness.com. We have already surpassed the record for 5 mile registrations!
Our next meeting will be October 8th at Logan's Roadhouse at 7:00pm. We have reserved the back room. If you would like to join us for a group run before the meeting, we will meet at 6:00pm at the intersection of Florida and Newman to run the paved trail between Florida and St. Louis. This will be a great rolling hill workout, and then we will drive over to Logan's around 6:50pm.
We are trying to get an accurate count of how many will be attending for Logan's. We will be creating a facebook event for you to reply (please only say "going" if you know you will be able to attend). If you do not have facebook please reply to our email address and let us know if you can make it firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please find the attached newsletter that includes Club Updates, Upcoming Races, and a recap from last month’s meeting.
