A marathon that crosses three states will take place next month. Patrick Tuttle of the Joplin Convention and Visitors' Bureau tells News Talk KZRG about the Mother Road Marathon:
"It's going to happen on October 13th. It'll be the fourth annual event, and has a full marathon from Commerce, OK into Joplin. We'll have a half-marathon that starts just north of Baxter Springs and runs into Joplin, and a 5K that just takes place in Joplin."
Tuttle says money raised through the event will go toward Route 66 preservation efforts. Find out more by clicking here.
