What to Know About the New Joplin Memorial Marathon Courses

one year ago

It’s a big year for Joplin Memorial Marathon. May 2016 marks the 5 year anniversary of the tornado and will find the Joplin community joined by thousands of regional and national participants to celebrate continual healing. Another significant aspect of this year’s event is the addition of the USATF certified full marathon course. We have put in many painstaking hours to ensure we provide a high quality event that represents this outstanding community. The 2016 course design started in February 2015 and finished in December 2015. We are proud of our course and know our runners will enjoy it. Our goal was to take participants through our downtown area, our parks, the tornado zone, and highlight many of Joplin’s historic landmarks. While designing the course we tried to avoid as many hills as possible, but alas you cannot avoid all hills if you are running in Joplin. We love our town and hope that you enjoy your experience here.
