TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) — Mississippi’s largest 10k is less than 24 hours away. More than 900 people have registered for the 37th annual Gumtree 10k and 2k fun run. The event takes place Saturday morning and starts in downtown Tupelo.
The course takes runners through the Joyner area, which was hit hard by the tornado. Still, race organizers say Joyner area residents are excited about having the race come through their neighborhood.
The race coincides with the annual Gumtree Art Festival, taking place in downtown Tupelo.
