With Double Decker Comes Spring Run


Hill country foot race starts the day with a sweat

The 18th Annual Double Decker Spring Run, sponsored by the Oxford-Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce, is gaining speed. This year’s 10K Run, 5K Run, and Kids Fun Run are scheduled for Saturday, April 27 at 7:30 a.m. The event is held in conjunction with the Double Decker Arts Festival Presented By C Spire.

Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi returns in the role of presenting sponsor again this year.

Organizers say the race has grown to nearly 1,200 racers coming to Oxford from all around the region. The Oxford-Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce has partnered again this year with Start2Finish health-oriented event management company for this year’s race. Start2Finish is the premier health-oriented event management company in the Mid-South.

The race takes participants through the tradition-rich rolling hills of Oxford early in the morning, so they can stick around after the race for a day full of arts, crafts, and music at the annual Double Decker Arts Festival.
