A popular feature of the Cotton District Arts Festival is the Old Cotton Mill 5K run, sponsored by OCH Regional Medical Center both in 2012 and now again in 2013. This certified course flows through the beautiful Mississippi State University Campus. Over 300 runners participated in the 2012 run and we are ready for more! A T-shirt is pretty much a given in any race, but the Cotton District Art Festival works hard to give you a T-shirt with outstanding art work.
And new for this year...1 Mile Family Fun Run! Conveniently scheduled for later in the morning, makes it easy for families to do it all. Mom runs the 5K, Dad and kids walk the dog in the Pet Parade and then the whole family takes in the fun run. A great way for families to make fitness fun. Everyone that crosses the finish line (2 legged or 4!) receives a finishers medal!!
