Join us on Saturday, April 1, 2017, for the 6th Annual Rise & Shine Half-Marathon & 5K! Participants will embark on a nationally certified course to benefit The Arc of Southeast Mississippi, a local nonprofit in Hattiesburg that provides recreational activities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The half-marathon and 5K routes will both start and finish at Hattiesburg Clinic’s main campus (415 S. 28th Avenue). The half-marathon will kick off at 7 a.m. with the 5K to follow at 7:30 a.m. Participants in both races will make their way through serene and charming Hattiesburg neighborhoods. At mile three, 5K participants will finish back at the clinic and half-marathon participants will continue north on 28th Avenue and make their way across the campus of Southern Miss.
The 2nd Annual Rise & Shine Expo will be held from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, March 31, at the Southern Miss Payne Center for registration and bag pick-up. All participants are asked to attend this event, as there will be no registration on the day of the race. Registered participants will be allowed to pick up their bags on race day.
