It takes over 700 volunteers to make the Joplin Memorial Run weekend happen. You are the heart of our event! All volunteers will receive:

  • Race Crew T-shirt
  • Other volunteer goodies
  • A meal to keep you going
  • Our undying appreciation
  • Entry into a drawing for lots of fun, free stuff!

Sign up as an individual, or invite a few friends to join you. If your business, club, or organization would like to support this event, we'd love to help you find a place to volunteer together!


We have multiple volunteer opportunities to choose from over the course of the JMR race weekend. Pick the spot that works best for you, and as the event gets closer, we’ll be sending you more details about your assignment.
