Tupelo Marathon and 14.2 Miler

Sunday September 5th, 2021

Description

Join us for the 20th annual Tupelo Marathon and 14.2 Miler race. We are staying on the original course that made us famous! The course is an out and back for the marathon runners on beautiful rolling country roads. For the 14.2 participants, it's a 13.1 mile run to the marathon turn-around and then a bonus 1.1 mile run to the finish. We're not charging extra for the bonus mile, so it's even a bigger bargain.  It's a 5:00am start but even with the early start expect some heat and humidity. We will have water stops and a few cheering spectators to help along the way.


Registrants will receive a 1/4 zip race shirt and an award winning medallion if you finish.  Prizes will be awarded for overall, Masters, Grandmasters, and age group winners.  Entries will be capped at 175 for the Marathon and 375 in the 14.2 Miler.



The marathon is a Boston Qualifier, so this is the perfect opportunity to attempt qualifying for Boston 2022.      Come join the fun and "Trample the Weak Hurdle the Dead" Sunday, September 5th at 5:00 am. 



1. Refund considerations will be based on race cancellation.
2. Age limit 18 years for the Marathon and 16 years for the 14.2 Miler
3. Swapping of races is discouraged but if you sign up early and don't wait until the last minute, we might consider it.
4. No carry over of registrations to following year.
