The Joplin Roadrunners are a group of local runners of all ages and abilities. We meet on the second Monday of every month to share our experiences, encourage one another, preview upcoming races and enjoy one anothers fellowship. It is our goal to promote and foster running in the tri-state area. Check this site for meeting locations and times.
Over the last few months we have not only seen the running community continue to grow, but also the Joplin Road Runner family! We hope to see a lot of these new members at this months meeting.
Jane and Mike were looking forward to hosting this months meeting, but they have had something come up and will not be able to host. (Thank you Mike and Jane for your efforts to try to re-host!) We will have to post pone the prediction run until next month where it will be held from Nathan Box's house. He has a great 5k and 5mile route for us to choose from so be looking forward to this. You won't have to worry about any traffic, but you might get hit by a deer! :)
Our Monday September 8th meeting will be held at Blackthorn Pizza (address below).
Blackthorn Pizza & Pub
Address: 510 S Joplin Ave, Joplin, MO 64801
We will have a group run starting at 6:15pm from Blackthorn with the meeting following at 7pm.
Special Guest Speaker:
Our special guest speaker will be Mr. Tim Wilson. Tim works for the Joplin Police Department and will be talking to us about safety and protecting ourselves while out running. He and his family are also a runners! We are coming up on the dreaded time change (well at least I dread it!) where most after work or evening runs will be in the dark. Also, right now most morning runs are in the dark as well. However, we also need to be aware of our surroundings in the middle of the day as well.
