Hernando Water Tower 10K


On October 12th, running enthusiasts from the Mid-South and beyond are invited to “Mississippi’s Front Porch” to participate in Hernando’s ninth annual “Water Tower 10K” road race which will highlight the city’s historic districts as well as one of its most-beloved local landmarks.

The 10-kilometer race will start in the heart of the city at Hernando’s Town Square, featuring a course that will wind through the city’s tree-lined streets and in the shadow of the Hernando Water Tower.

Proceeds from the race will benefit Hernando Excel By 5's Dolly Parton Imagination Library. The goal of Hernando Excel By is to improve early childhood education by making sure kids have access to age appropriate books. Every child who is enrolled in the Imagination Library from birth to age five, will receive one book a month until their 5th birthday.

All families in the Hernando city limits with preschool children ages one month to five years old are eligible to enroll in the program.
