|The JMR Kids Run is an extension of the Joplin Memorial Run 5k & Half Marathon. The goal of the Kids Run is to promote good health and physical fitness by giving kids the opportunity to accomplish the goal of running one mile the night before the 5k & Half Marathon. Kids K-12 are eligible to participate.
Kids Run will start and finish from the 5K/Half Marathon finish line - Kids Run Map. Snacks and water will be provided.
Upon finishing, all 1 mile runners will be required to immediately converge in the Kids Corral area on the corner of Joplin Ave. & 8th St. (volunteers will help shuttle participants to this location).
For the safety of all participants, anyone picking up a child will be
required to show proper ID (pull tag from the child's racing bib) prior to removing their child. No exceptions! We are not responsible for the safety of the children after the kids corral closes at 9:00 a.m.
In order to maintain a safe and secure event, the kids run is capped at 250 participants. Each participant will receive an official Joplin Memorial Kids Run t-shirt at packet pick-up on May 18th, so register today!
This is not a competitive race. Every child that has registered and crosses the finish line will receive a commemorative medal for completing the one mile run.
