The Joplin Memorial Marathon is not just a race; it's a celebration of life, resiliency, and the human spirit. On May 22, 2011, an EF-5 tornado ripped through Joplin, destroying much of the town and claiming 161 lives. Through blood, sweat, and tears, the community banded together to rebuild. Now, Joplin is stronger than ever, but we will never forget the 161 who are no longer with us, the survivors and the community forever changed. We RUN in celebration of them. 

The Joplin Memorial Marathon is a Boston-qualifying race which is run on a USATF certified course beginning and ending in beautiful Downtown Joplin. The first mile of the run, runners will run through a mile of 161 banners, each depicting the name of a tornado victim. All participants are electronically timed.

 

NOTE:  Virtual runners will be mailed their shirt and medal within 4-6 weeks post-race.

The Joplin Memorial Marathon 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.
