Gum Tree 10K & 2K
5/13/2017 at 8:30am

The 40th Annual Gum Tree Run, directed by the Tupelo Running Club, is Mississippi’s largest 10K. It is recognized by Runner’s World and Running Times magazines. Runners will be coming from all over the world to participate in this classic as they have for over 30 years.

GumTree 2017 has a fast, flat USATF certified course (MS12001MS), with excellent traffic control and experienced teams of organizers that will make this weekend one of great fun. Runner’s World has even named it Mississippi’s best and one of the top 75 runs in the nation. The 10K run will be the same course as it has been the last 3 years. The City of Tupelo and the neighbors of Joyner are excited to have "their runners" come through the neighborhood again this year.


The ChronoTrack BTag timing system will be used this year.

**Proceeds from this race benefit Tupelo Lee Humane Society.**
