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.
You can print out the form below and mail it to Joplin Roadrunners, P.O. Box 847, Joplin, MO 64802 or give it to Nathan Sicher or Jenna Henry Mutz. Additionally, Nathan and Jenna will have forms with them most places they go.
Yearly membership is only $35 per household and $25 for individuals. Household membership includes one t-shirt with a second at half price ($5). Individuals receive one t-shirt.
All memberships include multiple race discounts throughout the year as well.
We look forward to having you join!

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 http://kipposhorts.com/
