The 2015 Back2Back Challenge is SOLD OUT. Best of luck to all our 2015 Back2Back participants!

Back2Back Challengers will run the Blues on Saturday, January 10th, then hit the road and run the First Light Marathon in Mobile on Sunday, January 11th. Both races feature marathons and half marathons so those who complete any combination of the two will receive a commemorative Back2Back Challenge finisher's award. Finishers who complete both marathons instantly qualify for Iridium level of Marathon Maniacs!

At the conclusion of the First Light Marathon on Sunday buses will return to the Blues start/finish area in Jackson.
