Covid-19 UDPAte & Virtual run News

The safety and health of our runners, employees, volunteers, and community is our foremost priority in determining the right course of action for our events at this time. In accordance with government orders and public health guidance, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the physical event of the Mississippi Bar Trail Run on June 6th.  We are still moving forward with our Virtual 5K/10K Run where runners will receive an event shirt and the finisher medal for completion by June 7th. For full information on the virtual run, please click on the update link above or continue reading below.


To get the word out to everyone about our commitment to the virtual race, we invite you to post on Facebook event page & Instagram (@forpd) any videos or photos from your run using the hashtags #mississippibartrailrun #fairoakstrailrun, or live stream on any app and @ us in the comments!
