What do you get when you connect almost 40 miles of abandoned rail lines, forgotten roads, and forestry trails? You get the perfect location for an ultra trail run! Located on the mysterious Witch Dance Trails near the midpoint of the Natchez Trace Parkway at Houston, Mississippi, the Witch Dance Runs will offer something for runners of all abilities with 5K, 10K, 25K and 50K routes along a circuitous, shaded trail that courses its way through varied terrain (see map here [link]). 

Join runners from across the Southeast at this first-ever running event held at Witch Dance. Plenty of camping available on site and discounts are available at local hotels
