Event details

Always inexpensive, the Dogwood Run 5K has been held annually in Neosho, Missouri since  Eldon Morgan first hosted it in 1983. We don't want money. We want to see you and your family run! Awards for age groups from 'under 10' to 'over 70' and the Delynn Kuhn Lifetime Achievement Award for the fastest older runner. The first 150 entrants get a dogwood tree.

5K out and back course starting an finishing at Big Spring Park in Neosho, MO. The course is hilly but beautiful since the dogwoods are in bloom. The 1K walk makes a lap around Big Spring park. Any proceeds from the event go to a local infrastructure project to support active lifestyles in Neosho, MO. This year we are raising funds to provide public tools for the Skate park (in Morse Park) and to help the Joplin Road Runners buy a chip timing system (that will be used for Dogwood run, and other events)

This is a no frills race: no chip timing (yet!), no finishers medals, no t-shirts. This keeps the cost low so you can bring the whole fam without breaking the bank, or sign up a friend for their first 5K. Come join us!
