Those who register by March 16 will be guaranteed an official race T-shirt. Participants can pick up race bags at the Rise & Shine Expo on Friday, April 6, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., at The University of Southern Mississippi’s Payne Center. The expo is a free, family friendly event featuring various local health and wellness vendors along with fun activities for adults and children. Those wanting to participate in the race will also be able to register at the expo.
“Hattiesburg Clinic is a proud supporter of The Arc of Southeast Mississippi and the work they do in our community. This event is not only a great way for Hattiesburg Clinic to give back but also for those who sign up to participate in the race, since all registration fees benefit The Arc,” said Hattiesburg Clinic Public Relations Manager Susan Yarrow. “We always look forward to this time of the year, because it’s like a big celebration. Last year, we had more than 600 people participate in the race, and we hope to see even more people this year.”
