The 5th Annual Mississippi River Challenge offers participants of three Clinton races – the CCC B-rrry Scurry 4-Mile Run, the Pam Pray Memorial 4-Mile Run(April 5), and one of the three Clinton Half Marathon Races(September 13) - the beautiful Mississippi River Challenge medal, a large commemorative medal. There is no fee to participate, however only the runners and walkers that complete all three races will earn the medal. This is a great incentive for people to demonstrate their commitment to improved health. All three races will benefit from this partnership.
