Runners follow an out-and-back course that starts and finishes at the city’s Jackson Convention Complex on. From there, the course winds through downtown neighborhoods and tree-lined streets like those through Bellhaven, where runners run past the home of legendary Southern writer (and Mississippi native) Eudora Welty. Note that the course shown below is from past years. The race organizers are planning on updating the course for 2015, so the map below is subject to change.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
