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. You can download our RaceJoy app click here and your results will post on our site. Virtual participants not using the app will be on the honor system. They can manually update their time and receive a shirt. Please see our "Virtual FAQ" click here.

Proceeds from the race benefit Hernando Excel By 5's Dolly Parton Imagination Library (DPIL) with a goal to improve early childhood education by making sure kids have access to age appropriate books. Every child who is enrolled in DPIL between the ages of one month old to five years old, will receive one book a month until their fifth birthday.
