Mid-South Races for Hope - Marathon | Half Marathon | 5K

The people of Cross County have always offered runners and walkers a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of corporate America. Rediscover what you love about running, enjoy a slice of rural American country running and take in the vibrant fall colors of Crowley's Ridge Due to the March 31, 2023, tornado our landscape has changed a bit. But the people of the "City with a Smile" have weathered the storm and are rebuilding our community. We invite you to be a part of that process.

Our races are out and back races that wind through part of the historic district and continue out along the ridge through fields ripe for harvest. The start and finish lines will be at Wynne Baptist Church, but the course will be basically the same route. By race day, we will be recertified and will continue to be a Boston Marathon qualifying race. We will have aid stations approximately every mile, and port-o-potties are also located near each station! Each aid station will be supplied with Vaseline, Gatorade, fruit, snacks, and smiles. At the finish line we will serve the traditional championship BBQ plate supper for all finishers and their families. Come run in the country and let us show you some small-town southern hospitality.

In lieu of a pasta dinner, we will work with locally owned restaurants to create pasta specials for the marathon weekend. More information to come.
