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.
We finally have our sun back in the evenings and some nice weather consistently! Perfect for kicking off the race season this spring.
The Freedom of Flight 5k on the Runway had over 400 participants including kids in the Fun Run. It was a beautiful morning for a race and a fun time on the Joplin Airport runway. A big thanks to Bobby Ballard for a great event and timing by Erik Bartlett from The Run Around.
Don't forget to register (click here to register) for the Joplin Memorial Run 5k or half marathon on May 16th. If you are not running, inquire with Ruth Sawkins about volunteering or just come out to cheer the runners on the course. In addition, the JMR Expo/packet pickup is out at MSSU on May 15th from 4 - 8 pm.
May 14th Meeting
Our meeting will be at 7pm on Thursday May 14th at the South YMCA in room B. (This is the room we have always used in the past)
