Event Information

Run With the Wind is a 15.6 mile road race that has been held annually by the Joplin Road Runners for over 30 years! Our claim to fame is that RWTW is the ONLY certified 25k in the State of Missouri (USATF). This is a great race for any runner looking to make it into the state record books. Course: Course Changes Direction to run WITH the wind! RWTW is a point to point course through the country roads of Southwest Missouri. Because Missouri weather is so unpredictable, we decided to bring extra comfort to our runners on those chilly February days by running the course WITH the wind! Relay: Can't run 25K ?! No problem! RWTW can be ran as a three person relay team. Joining the relay team is a great way to participate in a longer race without having to run the whole distance. Each member will run roughly 1/3 of the course or 5.2 miles. Relay teams must provide one vehicle to transport relay members to the exchanges. ** New for 2014: Themed Relay Run! Cowtown: Dress up as a cow, cowgirl, cowboy or even a Cow-patty.
