Just speaking on my own experiences. The entirety of Mississippi does not feel that way, although more may feel that way than many other places. I see people walk/run all the time and do so myself.

Maybe it's my area.
No , it's not just your area. People take walk/run statewide and even in the delta. Some people are just comfortable in their own bubbles when making that above your statement.

There's a nice walking trail in the cypress preserve on Cypress Lane. I've walked there before but I can't remember whether I've seen anyone running there.

It is off of South Broadway Extended. There is an off-street parking lot. At one time, a public road crossed the levee, but it is now closed to auto traffic. However, the former road has been repaved.

the trail is located just on the edge of downtown and in the hood. park on the waterfront, risk your vehicle being broken while you run. park at the other end, risk your vehicle not being there when you get back. in either case, expect nothing from local law enforcement. the trail is not used near as much as one would think, the only real reason it went in is that it was 80% grant funded and "we can't turn down free money". So the city which has no money to fix roads or the failed sewer shelled out over 300k match funds to get the "free money".


your best bet is to either join the Y and use their trail, look up hodding carter memorial ymca, or to run in your neighborhood.

I didn't find a Greenville running group on Facebook but that doesn't mean one doesn't exist. Check around with local sporting goods stores, gyms and yoga studios. There's a pretty good chance you'll find some running routes and maybe some training partners and new friends. Running in Mississippi is pretty pleasant much of the year. Of course, summer runs can be brutal particularly during daylight hours. Dress, hydrate and plan accordingly.

Here are some running routes around Greenville.

Here are some parks, recreation and fitness links in Greenville.

Greenville, Mississippi co-hosts the Mississippi River Marathon with Lake Village, Arkansas. I haven't participated in this event but I ran the Tupelo (Mississippi) Marathon and the Mississippi Blues Marathon in Jackson. There are plenty of runners in Mississippi if you know where to look for them. Good luck!

I meant “or restore its” original operating hours.
I worked at that library for three years. It was built in 1967 and still looks like it.

oh and the city council just voted to close the trail at dark due to "safety concerns", the hours will be 530A-830P. one councilman even remarked the "hooligans wont be out at 530". They were also concerned because a member of the public saw a snake recently, imagine that a snake within a few yards of the lake! oh the horror!!!


BTW, there are no yoga studios here. but yes there are a number of runners. again, most run in their neighborhoods or at the Y.
