Racin' for the Seed is a 5K and Duathlon benefiting The Mustard Seed, a Christian community for adults with developmental disabilities. Participants can run/walk the first 5K as an individual ($30) or can do the full Duathlon as an individual ($50) or relay team ($80). Registration can be found at www.racinfortheseed.com or calling The Mustard Seed at 601-992-3556.
Both the 5K and full Duathlon are on relatively flat courses. The 5K's will be on a Multi-Purpose trail and the biking portion of Duathlon crosses the beautiful Ross Barnett Reservoir. The courses will be well supported.
From Lakeland Drive (Hwy 25) in Flowood, take Old Fannin Road as it turns into Northshore Parkway as it crosses Spillway Road. After crossing the Ross Barnett Reservoir, take second left onto Fannin Landing Circle, Fannin Landing Park is about 1.5 miles down on the left.
The Mustard Seed is a 501(c)3 charitable organization who does not receive State and Federal funding; therefore, events like Racin' for the Seed are greatly appreciated for continuing The Mustard Seeds special ministry.
