Introduced in 2015, the "Quarter Note" is the latest addition to our race lineup. If you’re a brand new runner, a walker, or just like to keep your mileage low, the new 10.5k quarter marathon will give you the starting line excitement of Mississippi’s largest road race and a finish line experience shared with the marathoners and half marathoners. “Quarter Note” runners will cover the first 4.5 miles and the last two miles of the marathon and half marathon courses, complete with live music, aid stations and cheering crowds. “Quarter Note” runners will get the same registration packet as the marathoners, including our popular race shirt, bag, limited edition CD and customized Blues Marathon harmonica, along with a great finisher’s medal. So get ready to play the Blues with the “Quarter Note!"
Awards will be presented three deep in the following categories in the Quarter Note:
Overall, Masters and Grand Masters
There are no awards for walkers in the Quarter Note.
All Quarter Note awards - Overall, Masters and age group - will be mailed shortly after the race.
