Event Details

Experience the thrill of the second annual Rodney Richardson Water Run on Saturday, August 17, 2024, at Town Square Park. This unique event, designed to beat the August heat, features a 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run course lined with super soakers and a refreshing blast from the Hattiesburg Fire Department as you cross the finish line. The race takes you through the picturesque Historic neighborhood in Downtown Hattiesburg, culminating in a grand finish at Town Square Park.

This is a great event for the entire family. All proceeds from the race benefit Ddembe Ministries, an orphan, widow, and family care ministry in Jinja, Uganda. Visit our website to find out more information about the work going on at Ddembe.

Runners will also have the option to run as charity runners for this race. By participating as a charity runner, you're not just running a race-you're making a difference. Your efforts will help raise funds and awareness for Ddembe Ministries, contributing directly to their impactful work in Uganda.

Both races will offer same-day registration, but runners who sign up after July 25th are not guaranteed a t-shirt.

Packet pickup will be on Friday, August 16th, at RARE Design, located at 127 Buschman Street, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Packets may also be picked up from 6:00 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. on race day at Town Square Park.

For the 5k and the 1 Mile Fun Run, awards will be given to overall male and female, as well as the top male and female finishers in each age group.
