Frigid, cold weather coming-in from the Northwest didn't stop hundreds of runners from participating in the 7th annual ‘Mississippi River Marathon, Half Marathon and 5-K Run.’

Nearly 650-participants ran or walked the race route that covered various parts of Mississippi and Arkansas. 

A chair member from the marathon said, nearly 75-percent of runners who ran the race this year are here from out of state.  

Collected money from entry fees and sponsors will go to help the Community Foundation of Washington County and the Southeast Arkansas Foundation.
