Join Mississippi Blues Marathon 2021

With live music before, after, and during the race, the Mississippi Blues Marathon promises to be exciting! The Mississippi Blues Marathon and Half-Marathon honors musicians who have made history over the years, as well as those who continue to shape the sound of the blues today. 

With room for experienced and first-time racers, this marathon is not solely about running. The event is a huge street party filled with enthusiastic supporters encouraging their friends and family to complete the races.

The Mississippi Blues Marathon proves to be a fun, top-notch marathon atmosphere for all runners.

The 14th Annual Mississippi Blues Marathon will take place in downtown Jackson, Mississippi’s capital city. With live music before, after, and throughout the course, the Mississippi Blues Marathon proves to be one-of-a-kind. Since our inaugural race in 2008, our event has worked to showcase Jackson and the rich Blues history of the state, with a portion of proceeds going to the Blues Foundation and its efforts to support local Blues Musicians.

Challenge yourself with the marathon or half-marathon, or take things a little easier with our 10K or 5K. You can even create a team of five runners and tackle the course as a relay team. Four of you take on five-mile legs with the final runner going the 6.2 miles to the end.
