The Leland Chamber of Commerce presents the Hotter than Hades Half Marathon.....the best half marathon in the Mississippi Delta! It is a grueling race through the beautiful Delta farmland and it has the BEST water stations a runner could wish for. If you think flat and straight are easy, you might just change your mind after this race! The race begins at Simmons Planting Company in Arcola and ends at Mitchell Distributing in Leland. There will be an after party and awards ceremony following the race. All proceeds will benefit Leland's "Christmas on Deer Creek".
Pre-registration ends on June 17 at midnight. Runners can also register at packet pick-up on Friday from 12 - 8 p.m. at the Cabin on the Bogue, 798 Patterson Road.
T-shirts and awards will not be mailed to runners after the event. Since this race is a benefit, there will be no refunds or transfers of any kind. The Leland Chamber is a 501(3)C charitable organization.
