Three Races, In Three Cities, In Three Days

April 23-25, 2021


Whistle Stop Challenge is a series of race events spanning 3 days from April 23, 2021-April 25, 2021. The race series is designed to take place in 3 different cities in Southwest MS along the railroad: Brookhaven, Summit, and McComb. The purpose of this design is to showcase the rich history of all three towns which were all started by, or trace much of their early success to, the arrival of the railroad in the 19th century. All three cities currently have beautifully preserved train depots which will serve as a perfect location to host the start and finish of each race. Each day of the weekend series will include a race in one of the three “whistle stop” towns. The series is also designed as a challenge event with longer race distances at each stop. The first event will be a 5K race in Brookhaven on Friday, April 23,  followed by a 10K race in Summit on Saturday, April 24, and then the grand finish will be a 15K race in McComb on Sunday, April 25.

Whistle Stop Makes A Difference

Approximately 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are abused before their 18th birthday.  Many child victims never report the abuse. Southwest Mississippi Children's Advocacy Center creates a safe place for children to report abuse and receive the help they need. Join us in making a difference in children's lives by participating in Whistle Stop Challenge or donating to support our race charity!
