Running with the King 5k

Join runners and walkers in Tupelo, Mississippi, the birthplace of the King of Rock and Roll, for the 2021 edition of Running with the King 5K. It is your chance to run a flat, fast course that takes you by the park and birthplace. Proceeds from this race will be donated to the Northeast Mississippi Boys and Girls Club.

This 5K is part of the Tupelo Elvis Festival. There are other events all weekend long.

Packet pick-up will be from 6:00 to 6:45 AM on Saturday, June 12, 2021 at Veterans Park. Look for the blue TRC tent.

For the 2021 race, there are both in-person and virtual options available.

The virtual race option  is for those who are not able to participate in person. Separate results will be provided for virtual runners and on site participants. You can download the RaceJoy App (click here) to automatically upload your results when you finish the distance or manually post your results on our site. Virtual participants not using the app will be on the honor system. They can manually update their time and receive a shirt. Be sure to share photos of your course, and running companions; two and four legs. See “How to upload your photos” click here. Please see our “Virtual FAQ” below.
