Hey Y’all!  Join us for the 9th Annual Magnolia Marathon & Half on November 21, 2020.  Your Magnolia Committee is hard at work putting together another excellent event!  Get excited for the return of our handmade finisher medals and awards, great food and a great atmosphere!  Our 2019 event yielded a donation of $4500 for our Alzheimer’s Mississippi!  Thanks for helping us help them!  Our 2020 goal is to exceed that amount!  If you are looking for a race with super friendly volunteers, a unique finisher medal, and a healthy amount of hills, give us a try!  Read what others are saying about Magnolia:

                “What a special keepsake from my Mississippi Marathon! Thanks to all the great people in Meridian who make this race such a success!” - Kristen.Gerlach
