About This Activity

Starry Night is the first of three races in Starlit Running Company's Nighttime Summer Race Series. Joplin's beautiful Frisco Greenway Trail is the venue for this chip timed, luminary lit run. You will enjoy a professional DJ, technical race shirt, glow bracelets, age category awards, post-race snacks including ice cream, and a race atmosphere like no other. Participate in all three events and receive an AWESOME, custom finisher's medal upon completion of the third race! Note:  it is not necessary to run the same distance in each event to receive the custom finisher's medal.  Feel free to mix and match distances as desired.
