Memphis in May announces new events

Memphis in May International Festival just got a little more exciting for athletes of every caliber – from elite runners to weekend joggers/walkers – with the announcement of the Great American River Run.

The 2016 event, a half marathon and 5K run, is the first of two events that will become part of the festival’s Memorial Day Weekend line-up closing out the month-long civic celebration. The race is expected to be a fast favorite of local and regional runners, with a course showcasing the Mississippi River, live entertainment along the run route and culminating with post-race music, food, and beverages on the river bluff.
