After meeting this morning (Thursday, April 25, 2013) with Oxford’s Emergency Management Director Jimmy Allgood, The Oxford CVB and Chamber have made the decision to proceed with plans for the weekend. It is evident to us that although there is a chance of scattered rain in the forecast, we will not be under a severe weather warning on Saturday. Therefore, at this time the decision has been made to proceed with plans for the Double Decker Arts Festival Presented by C Spire Wireless and Spring Run as scheduled. We will continue to monitor the weather. Updates or changes to the schedules will be posted on social media and our websites www.doubledeckerfestival.com and www.doubledeckerspringrun.com. AM 1630 will also be updated with weather and change of schedule information throughout the next couple of days. We look forward to everyone coming out to our events throughout the weekend- rain or shine!
Start2Finish is proud to announce a partnership with the Oxford-Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce to bring you the Double Decker 5k/10k on April 27, 2013. Join us in a run through the tradition-rich rolling hills of one of Mississippi's most popular towns. Pass beautiful antebellum homes, run through the Ole Miss campus, as well as the historic home of William Faulkner. Stick around after the race for a day full of arts, crafts, and music at the annual Double Decker festival. You don't want to miss this weekend of fun for the whole family.
NOTE: The course was re-configured in 2011 and will no longer be routed through alleyways but will remain on streets throughout race.
Kids Fun Run - 9 a.m.
CHIP TIMING: Double Decker Spring Run will use Start2Finish's State of the Art Jaguar Timing System. Each participant will receive a race number bib with a timing chip included on the bib. Please wear your bib number on the front of your body and do NOT remove chip from the back of your bib number. Participants in the Kids Fun Run will not wear timing chips.
