HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The University of Southern Mississippi hosted a preview event Friday night for an annual half-marathon.
The third annual Rise & Shine Expo featured about 40 health and fitness booths and activities for children.
It also gave participants in Saturday's seventh annual Rise & Shine Half-Marathon a chance to pick up their race number and a T-shirt.
Hundreds of runners are expected to take part in that event, which will take place at Hattiesburg Clinic at 7 a.m.
Both the race and the expo benefit the Arc of Southeast Mississippi.
