November 28 – Joplin Turkey Trot: 5K @ 8:00am and 1 Mile @ 7:30am
Welcome to the 8th Annual Joplin Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk in Downtown Joplin! Runners and walkers are encouraged to join us on Thanksgiving morning for what has become a family tradition for many. This CERTIFIED 5K course begins and ends right in front of Joplin City Hall on Main Street, which is closed to traffic. Participants of the 5K will enjoy a long sleeved race shirt, AMAZING FINISHER MEDAL, chip timing, start/finish line announcing by BoCa Enterprises, music by Resonation, Krispy Kreme donuts, and Starbucks coffee. Club 609, across from the finish line, will be open just for our runners who want to have a Bloody Mary or other mixed drink before heading to Thanksgiving dinner. As Joplin’s largest 5K, this is a race you don’t want to miss!
