About The Ridgeland Endurance Weekend
The Ridgeland Endurance Weekend Half Marathon is a great race for any distance runner looking to challenge themselves. The route takes you through the beautiful and diverse landscape of Ridgeland, Mississippi, with its rolling hills and lush forests. From start to finish, there will be plenty of sights to enjoy as you make your way along the 13.1 miles.
Starting off on Lakeland Drive near the Ross Barnett Reservoir, runners will follow a winding course that passes right by several parks and lakes before heading back towards downtown Ridgeland. As you run through this area, it’s easy to take in all the natural beauty around you while also appreciating the modern amenities nearby such as shopping centers or local eateries.
April weather in Mississippi can be unpredictable but typically ranges from mild during the day (50-60°F) to cool at night (40-50°F). You should come prepared for rain just in case though! The crowds are usually quite friendly and supportive throughout most of the course so expect some cheering from fans lining up along certain sections of your journey too!
Overall, running this half marathon gives participants a unique opportunity to see some parts of Mississippi that they may not normally get a chance to explore — plus it’s always nice having an excuse to travel somewhere new! Furthermore, people who want more than just completing one race have even more options since there are other events going on during this endurance weekend like 5Ks and 10Ks so everyone can find something they enjoy doing here no matter their level of experience or fitness goals.
