Race Information

The annual Mississippi Blues Marathon will take place in downtown Jackson, Mississippi’s capital city. With live music before, after, and throughout the course, the Mississippi Blues Marathon proves to be one-of-a-kind. Since the inaugural race in 2008, the 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 the “Quarter Note” quarter marathon. 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. With the Mississippi Blues Marathon, there really is something for everyone!
