MIDSOUTH CHAMPIONSHIP MARATHON AND HALF MARATHON IS GOING BACK TO OUR ROOTS!
$30 HALF MARATHON
The people of Cross County offer runners and walkers a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of Corporate America.
This is a USATF certified marathon, out and back course. Aid stations are placed approximately every mile, and port-o- potties are also located near each station! Each aid station will be supplied with Vaseline, Gatorade Endurance , Fruit, Salt, and various Snickety Snacks!
Friday there is a Small Town Expo and Pasta Supper hosted by Muckas Running Club at Wynne 1st Assembly of God Family Life Center, 1900 North Killough Road. You can browse products from some of our local merchants, pick up your bib, timing chip, ask questions, and enjoy the company of your fellow racers.
Saturday morning, you’ll show up at Wynne High School,(800 E. Jackson Ave) to take care of business! Race Day Registration, TIMING CHIP PICK UP, a warm building, and indoor plumbing awaits you! Pre-Race Pep Talk/Safety Speech/Motivational Montra/PRAYER/National Anthem starts at 7:45am just outside the South Endzone Entrance Gate on Lemons.
This is a rural route! Our local law enforcement does and outstanding job of controlling traffic and keeping it to a minimum on the race route. However, due to our race taking place during our local Harvest Season, we cannot completely shut down the course to traffic as farmers have to get their crops to the grainery.
Oh the life of a country runner!

After the race, showers and dressing rooms are available at Wynne High School. We will be serving the best bar-b-que you’ve ever tasted (cooked by a local bar-b-que team), along with baked beans, coleslaw, Pizza, home made desserts, sodas and water. Lunch is served in the high school cafeteria. Get a plate, find a table, eat, visit with fellow racers and enjoy the award ceremonies!!
