With live music before, after and throughout the course, the Mississippi Blues Marathon proves to be one-of-a-kind.
Since our inaugural race in 2008, our event has worked to showcase Jackson and the rich Blues history of the state, with a portion of proceeds going to the Mississippi Blues Commission’s Musicians’ Benevolent Fund.
Challenge yourself with the marathon or half-marathon, or take things a little easier with our “Quarter Note” quarter marathon, and even our new 5k. You can even create a team of five runners and tackle the course as a relay team. Four of you take on five-mile legs with the final runner going the 6.2 miles to the end.
