Miss-Lou to host Jingle All the Way 5K

NATCHEZ — Local runners and walkers have the chance to jingle all the way to the finish line of a 5K this weekend to raise money for the Miss-Lou Region Health Care Committee.

The Jingle All the Way 5K will begin at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at the Natchez Visitor Reception Center, and runners and walkers will cross the Mississippi River bridge to Vidalia.

A one-mile fun run will begin at 9:30 a.m. at the Vidalia amphitheatre.

Committee member and Ward 3 Alderwoman Sarah Smith said the bridge from Natchez to Vidalia would be shut down for approximately an hour for the 5K.

Two-way traffic will be open on the other bridge, she said.

Pre-registration for the 5K is $20 and $10 for the fun run. Pre-registration ends Tuesday.

Registration after Tuesday for the 5K is $25 and $15 for the fun run.

Registration for teams with a minimum of five members is $60.

Long-sleeved T-shirts will be given to the first 200 runners of walkers registered.

Post-race shuttle service to Natchez will be provided.

Registration forms can be downloaded and printed from misslouregion.com and dropped off at the Concordia Chamber of Commerce. Forms are also available at the Concordia Chamber and the Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce.
