Weekend Jogs Around Town

The weather is again predicted to be perfect this weekend.  Get outside during these days of perfection and enjoy the Lord's creation.  If you are interested in taking a jog or walk in the morning, you have plenty of options.

Start things off Friday after work at the Purple Dress Run, bringing attention to domestic violence.  Begins and ends at Jaco's Tacos downtown Jackson.  The entry fee of $35 includes a post-race beverage.

The inaugural Witchcrafted 5K Fun Run and Superheroes 1-Mile Jog takes place at Old Trace Park in Ridgeland.  $30 for the 5K and $20 for tikes.

You also have the 3rd Annual Laps for Little Ones 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run, benefiting the Little Lighthouse.  This takes place at the track at Jackson Academy.  Again, $30 for the 5K (with a $80 family max).

And then you have the Sickle Cell 5K Jack O Lantern Jog, put on by the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at UMC.  Again, $30 for the 5K (I remember when these things were $15 for the expensive ones).  This race takes place on UMC's campus.

Morrison Heights Baptist Church hosts the Great Race in Clinton.  It's only $25.
