Kids' Race Day

Kids' One-Mile Fun Run

Kids' Fun Run Registration - CLOSED

Registration for our Kids' One-Mile Fun Run is not available after December 4, 2014. There will be no registration during the Race Expo or on race day.

The Mississippi Blues Marathon Kids' One-Mile Fun Run is an exciting opportunity to introduce children to a road racing event. The 2015 event will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 10. The event will be timed, but no winners will be announced. The primary focus of our race is to have fun and enjoy running together. Children ages 5 to 13 are eligible to participate.

The fun run course is adjacent to the marathon start and finish area near the Mississippi Art Garden and Thalia Mara Hall in downtown Jackson. A map of the start and finish areas is below. Click the map image to view as a .pdf.

Volunteer for the Kids' One-Mile Fun Run

The Mississippi Blues Marathon Kids’ One-Mile Fun Run needs volunteers to support our event. We are seeking adult volunteer support from parents and faculty of our participating schools, local military and law enforcement personnel, businesses and community organizations, as well as high school student volunteers (11-12 grades).

Each volunteer will receive an official Kids’ Road Crew t-shirt.
