Kids’ Runs



To encourage healthy, active habits, the annual BNA Bank Tallahatchie River Run 5k has teamed up with Baptist Memorial Hospital – Union County to expand the running options for children. Many younger children are not ready for 3.1 miles and a ½ Mile Fun Run is not a challenge. So we host the 1 Mile Race to kids ages 12 and under!

½ Mile Fun Run for ages 7 and under:  8:00 a.m. ($10) This is a fun run and is not timed. Finisher medals for all.

1 mile Race for 12 and under:  8:30 a.m. ($15) The One Mile Race will be professionally timed and awards will be given to the top ten male finishers and top ten female finishers. Finisher medals for all.

5k Kids of all ages can participate in the big race if they choose to run 3.1 miles. ($22)

All Races begin in front of BNA Bank at 133 East Bankhead Street

All race participants will receive a  dri-fit race shirt.


Race Packets will be available for pick up on FRIDAY prior to the race at BNA Bank (133 East Bankhead Street). Race packets will also be available for pick-up on race day BEFORE 8:00 A.M.

Parking is available in the city lot below the Union County Library on Carter Avenue and the BNA Bank parking Lot. Please DO NOT park anywhere on Bankhead Street in the downtown area.

We want all kids to run!
