In honor of the 161 individuals who lost their lives and all who have helped recover from the EF-5 tornado that struck May 22, 2011. The Joplin Memorial Run invites you to register now and be a part of the event. A portion of proceeds from each race goes back to the memorial and rebuilding efforts. The Joplin Memorial Run is proud to support tornado recovery since it’s transformation from Boomtown Run in 2011 to Joplin Memorial Run in 2012. Since 2012 they have donated over $250,000 to United Way, Rebuild Joplin, Bright Futures, and Bill and Virginia Leffen Center for Autism to help with tornado relief and recovery.
