About This Activity

Ever want to run through the halls of your high school?  The course runs throughout the Canton High School & Porter Middle School campuses.  Come out to Canton for the 1st Annual Welcome to TigerLand 5k & 1 Mile Fun Walk!  This will be the first race of its kind - as students and runners will have the opportunity to spend a day with their families getting fit and healthy.  All proceeds will benefit the academic community of Canton.  All runners will receive participation tee shirts, listen to awesome music throughout the race, and enjoy delicious post-race refreshments. The fun mile walk will start at 2:30 pm, followed by the 5k race at 2:00 pm.

Fleet Feet Jackson has partnered with us to provide an awesome race day experience!  Please visit them in Ridgeland for all your running needs!

Why come out to Canton? After the race, you and your family can head over to the Square to enjoy great food and peruse the many shops offering a variety of clothing and decorative art!
