    This is a very encouraging race. At the beginning of the race, they have a moment of silence for all those who lost their lives in the Joplin Tornado. Then the first half smile of the race, they have flag set up representing each person who died from the tornado. It’s a little hilly, but a great course. Plenty of encouragement along the way and good water stations.

    In participating in races that are for a cause or for remembering an tragic event you have to go in it with a different expectation. I wanted to do this race for the people that lost their lives from the tornado. I didn’t have much of an expectation other than doing my best. The course is tough as Joplin is a smaller town and you run through side streets and business areas. The start and finish you see flags that have names of the people who lost their lives during the tornado. It makes you want to run for them. Joplin Memorial Run does a great job with their swag and awesome finisher party. I will be doing this race again in 2018.
