Run With the Wind is a 15.6 mile road race (Point to Point) that has been held annually by the Joplin Road Runners for over 30 years. Run With The Wind is the only USATF certified 25K point to point road course in the State of Missouri.
The course will change direction to Run WITH The Wind. Run With The Wind is a point to point course through the scenic country roads of Southwest Missouri.
If 25K isn't possible at your current fitness level, no problem. Run With The Wind has a great 3 person relay option coming soon.
Building a relay team is a great way to participate in a longer race without being required to run the entire distance. Each member will run roughly 1/3 of the course or 5.2 miles. Relay teams must provide one vehicle to transport relay members to the exchange points.
Event details and schedule: Race Day registration will be at Sarcoxie High School at from 7-8:45 AM
Event begins at 9:00 AM from either Sarcoxie High School or Carthage High School (depending on wind direction. That determination will be made 24-48 hours prior to race time). Shuttles will be provided to the start and from the finish.
Many participants leave a vehicle at the finish so they won't need a shuttle and we encourage it.
We will announce a packet pickup location for the day before the event.
