Description

Established in 1890, Historic Orange Mound is the oldest African American community in the City of Memphis.  After a 127 year wait, Orange Mound hosted its FIRST 5k in 2017.  JUICE Orange Mound is excited to host the 4th annual "Round The Mound" 5K and want YOU to join us. 

Did you know that the 5K falls on Halloween in 2020!  This made our theme selection process relatively easy as we are pumped to host a COSTUME RUN.  That's right, you can experience your first 5K or next 5K in your favorite costume gear.  Just imagine the faces of our residents as President Obama, Frankenstein, and Sponge Bob pass by their home.  We invite all friends and folks of Orange Mound out for this special event. 

As the rain made the 3rd Annual Round The Mound extra special, let's see what Mother Nature is thinking closer to the date.  More details, including the t-shirt design and route and exciting updates will be revealed every step of the way.  

Most notably, this event serves as the annual fundraiser for our 501c3 organization so even if you can't participate, DONATE!  We promise it will help us create a great experience for current residents in Historic Orange Mound.  #bettertogether #onevisionmanyvoices #OrangeMoundstrong #RTM2020

Are You Ready to go ROUND THE MOUND?

It all started with a dream.  Five Orange Mound residents came together in 2017 to form the first planning committee and the rest is history!  To date, our organization has successfully hosted THREE 5Ks in Historic Orange Mound and the momentum is growing.  We cannot wait for this to be an event that inspires thousands of participants to come and explore Orange Mound--the oldest African American community in the City of Memphis.  

Positive press!
