About This Activity

This event begins and ends at the Joe Becker Memorial Stadium, home of the Joplin Blasters! Included with the price of registration is one ticket for general admission to the game (additional tickets can be purchased with runner registration). During the 7th Inning Stretch participating Glow Runners will storm the field and exit the stadium to begin the race and light up the night!

This is a chip-timed run on a certified course with awards going to the top three fastest times in each age bracket. The 14 age brackets will consist of 5 year increments, ages 12 & under through 70 & up.

All proceeds will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Jasper and Newton Counties. Your participation in this event will provide children in our community with much needed support to ensure they reach their full potential in life.

At Big Brothers Big Sisters, our vision is that all children achieve success in life. Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and during, professionally supported, one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

We fulfill our vision and mission by providing children support, guidance, friendship, and fun by matching them with adult volunteers who serve as a consistent source of encouragement and support.

Our professional staff works with both the volunteer and the child to ensure a memorable, safe, and fun experience.
