Music & Entertainment
The Blues were born in Mississippi and are a huge part of our event! Nationally and internationally-known Delta Blues musicians provide the soundtrack to the entire race weekend beginning with the pre-race Expo and continuing through the finish line. In addition to music at the start/finish area, runners will enjoy live music all around the course.
After you've rested your soles, it's time to revive your soul! The annual Blues Crawl takes you through some of Jackson's favorite music locales for more live Blues. Wristbands will be in all runners' bags or can be purchased for $10 at the Expo and on race day. A trolley will offer free shuttle service between the locations. The shuttle service will run until 12:00 a.m.
