Welcome to the Words to Live By 5K!
The 5th Annual Words to Live By 5K is set for May 17, 2014. Online registration will be up soon! We thank you for your support of the Boy Scouts of America and our local council!
The race starts will be held at Camp Binachi, just south of Meridian at:
5534 Camp Binachi Road
Meridian, MS 39301
Registration opens at 7:00 am. See you there!
What's New for 2014!
We are moving the race BACK to Camp Binachi in Meridian, MS to bring the race back to its foundation and to show off Scouting at its best! We will offer a 5K and a 1-Mile Fun Run as we always have...but we are adding on a 10K trail run as well this year!
Registration is coming soon! Register early to take advantage of the Early Bird Discounts!
Race Photos Benefit Choctaw Area Council
Last year, we were glad to have Snap It Sports Photography team up with us to provide all runners with the chance to purchase pictures of them running in the Words to Live By 5K. From those sales, 100% of the earnings were given directly to the Choctaw Area Council. We are proud to announce that Snap It Sports will again be contributing 100% of the sales to the council. We hope that you will help support Scouting by purchasing your pictures!
