On October 9th, running enthusiasts from the Mid-South and beyond are invited to “Mississippi’s Front Porch” to participate in Hernando’s 12th Annual “Water Tower 10K” road race which will highlight the city’s historic districts as well as one of its most-beloved local landmarks.
The 10-kilometer race, which will start Saturday, October 9th at 8 a.m. in the heart of the city at Hernando’s Town Square, features a course that will wind through the city’s scenic, tree-lined streets in the shadow of the Hernando Water Tower. Built in 1925 and officially designated a Mississippi Landmark.
For 2021, there is a virtual race option for those who can't participate in person. Separate results will be provided for virtual runners and on site participants.
