Tupelo Marathon: race description

Join us for the 2016 edition of the Tupelo Marathon/13.1 Miler. Tupelo is a throwback to the way marathons used to be. There are no bands on the course, there are no cheering spectators, there isn't a water stop every mile and we never hand out energy gels. Even with the early start it will be hot and humid, but you will get a unique tie-dyed t-shirt for entering and an award winning medallion if you finish. Entries will be capped at 350 for the Marathon and 450 in the 13.1 Miler.

Course

The Tupelo marathon course runs from downtown Tupelo through several older neighborhoods and has a small town feel to it. Being Northeast Mississippi it has rolling hills but is very similar to the old course in elevation change.


The marathon and 13.1 miler will both begin at 5:00 AM and use the same starting line on the east side of the coliseum. Both races will use the same finish line –, inside the coliseum. The 13.1 miler runners will do the course once and the marathoners will do a small loop in the parking lot before doing the course a second time.


Host Hotel

The Hilton Garden Inn has agreed to be the Host Hotel for the Tupelo Marathon again this year. A limited number of rooms are available for Saturday and Sunday nights, September 3rd and 4th at the discounted rate of $99 per night. Use the following link Hilton Garden Inn Tupelo, MS Hotel and discount code of MARA16.
