The 42nd Annual Gum Tree Run, directed by the Tupelo Running Club, is one of Mississippi’s largest 10K races. It has been 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 40 years.
******NEW START TIME******8:00am********
GumTree 2019 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 5 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.
