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:

Of course, a good description and a license plate number will help the police immensely with the case.

Joplin Roadrunner website

Hello members! 
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. 

Mark Kinsley, who invented the Kippo shorts, has offered our members a 20% discount until March 31st. Please use the code you received in the JRR monthly email.  You can find these at
Our very own Brian Smith wore these shorts in a 50k this past weekend and they performed flawlessly.

Below is a link to a map of all the bike routes in Carthage. This was requested at the last meeting by a few members (I think because they sometimes run in Carthage). Many thanks to Brady providing this as well as his efforts/support for making this possible.
