About This Activity

Run With The Wind is a unique run where the course direction depends on the wind!  Run With The Wind was, until very recently, the only CERTIFIED 25K race in the State of Missouri making your run a truly special experience and a chance to get in the Missouri State Record Books!  It continues to be the only certified 25K course in Southwest Missouri run on the roads!

INDOOR Facilities at both the start and finish of the race - Carthage High School and Sarcoxie High School

Limited transporation between facilities

Five Hydration Stations along the course

Post Race Refreshments

Awards - Top Overall Male/Female and Age Bracket by 5 year increments

Due to the unpredictable weather in February, to protect our volunteers, we will have a three hour and thirty minute cut off time.  The course will be unsupported after this time.  Runners may choose to remain on the course after the cut off time, but there will be no hydration stations or other volunteers on the course.  The finish line will remain open until the last runner comes in either by foot or by SAG vehicle.

There are no refunds for any race that the Joplin Roadrunners host.  Up front expenses are in the $2500 range and not one Joplin Roadrunner gets PAID to work on the race.  It is all volunteer and all for charity.  You can always pick up your t-shirt and finisher's medal within thirty days of the race day if the event is canceled or you can't make it to run.

Packet pickup and last minute registrations will be available on Saturday from 7:30-8:30 at the starting locations to be announced based on the wind direction.  Follow our Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/Run-with-the-Wind-162586077168654/
