TCPS hosting benefit race on its XC course

By NEMS Daily Journal

Tupelo Christian Prep wants area runners – students and adults – to participate in Saturday’s 5K race on its new cross country course.
TCPS coach Lynn Holland says that once the course matures it will be all-grass venue similar to Mississippi College’s Choctaw Trails. However, the course is expected to be quite muddy for this race, he notes.
“We’re really trying to play up the angle of a muddy course on a cold day as a different kind of race than most of our local 5Ks,” Holland said.
Race officials are hoping for a field of 100-plus runners, including teams.
Race-day registration at 8 a.m. in gym while online registration at The entry fee is $20 online and $25 day of race.
Contact Holland for more information at or 322-2188.
Proceeds from the race will benefit the TCPS Parent Teacher Fellowship.
