Welcome to the Words to Live By 10K & 5K!
The 5th Annual Words to Live By 10K & 5K is set for May 17, 2014. We thank you for your support of the Boy Scouts of America and our local council!
This year, we have added a 10K Trail Race that will take you all around Camp Binachi and through many great sights and experiences of camp. We hope that it will show you more of what the Boy Scouts do each year at camp as well as giving you a great running experience. The 10K course can be muddy, depending on the weather before the race.
The race starts will be held at Camp Binachi, just south of Meridian at:
4434 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!
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!
Calling All Scouts & Venturers!
Whether you are a member of a Cub Scout Pack, Boy Scout Troop, or Venture Crew....we need your help!
As part of Beaver Day on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at Camp Binachi, Scouts will be able to come and help out with the setup and running of the race before starting work on your Service Project for Summer Camp Honor Troop. Line the course and cheer on the runners as they run to support YOU!
