Running enthusiasts from the Mid-South and beyond are invited to “Mississippi’s Front Porch” to participate in Hernando’s ninth annual “Water Tower 10K” road race which will highlight the city’s historic districts as well as one of its most-beloved local landmarks. The 10-kilometer race, which will start in the heart of the city at Hernando’s Town Square, features a course that will wind through the city’s scenic, tree-lined streets in the shadow of the Hernando Water Tower. Built in 1925 and officially designated a Mississippi Landmark. The water tower has figured prominently in local lore through the years, most recently gracing the cover of the Grammy-nominated North Mississippi Allstars’ “Hernando” CD. Proceeds from the race will benefit Hernando Excel By 5’s Dolly Parton Imagination Library. After-race party activities include live music by popular “home-grown” musicians, great door prizes and food and beverages provided by local vendors.
