Freeman Joplin Memorial Run

The Joplin Memorial Run was created as a way to honor the 161 people who lost their lives in the May 22, 2011 tornado and to provide hope to the Joplin community while at the same time staging a first class event that runners will come back for again and again.

All races will begin in front of Memorial Hall at 8th & Joplin Street in downtown Joplin. Joplin Street is one block directly west of Main Street.


Join us for the 10 year anniversary on May 22, 2021!
