Welcome to the 10th 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 super soft raglan event shirt, AMAZING FINISHER MEDAL, music by a professional DJ, Krispy Kreme donuts, and 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 stand alone 5K, this is a race you don’t want to miss!
