(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The sixth annual Junior League Pony Express 5k and Half Marathon is this Saturday, September 29th, and they are in need of both runners and volunteers.

Organizers say volunteers play a big part by assisting with monitoring intersections, directing traffic, encouraging racers along the route and assisting with water and snack stations

This year the junior league has partnered with United Way. Earnings from the race will go to both organizations.

The proceeds that go to United Way will be distributed to their local community partners which is why they say participation is very important this year.

The next few days will likely see several rounds of showers and thunderstorms that could bring some heavy rainfall to the area. For Tuesday, we are tracking our next storm system that could give us a better chance of showers and storms, especially late afternoon into the overnight hours.
