Yes, you read that correctly. They're going back to our roots and our original course. It's what set this race apart and made it famous. The course is an out and back for the marathon runners through beautiful rolling country. For the 14.2 mile participants, it's a 13.1 mile run to the marathon turn-around and then a bonus 1.1 mile run to the finish. They're not even charging extra for the bonus mile, so it's even a bigger bargain! Tupelo is a throwback to the way marathons used to be.... join in the fun!
