The Legal Beagle 5K Run/Walk is an annual event sponsored by the Jackson Young Lawyers Association (JYL). All proceeds from the event benefit the Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project (MVLP). The event is typically held in March. The Run/Walk takes place on the Old Phidippides Watermelon Classic 5K (3.1 miles) Course, a flat and fast USATF certified course through residential streets of Northeast Jackson.
There are awards for male and female runners and walkers for overall, masters, grand masters, and senior masters and top three awards for the standard five-year age groups from under 14 to over 70. There are also trophies for the firm or business with the most overall participants. The popular Legal Beagle T-shirts, which feature MVLP's logo, are included in the race materials and are also available for sale without race entry.
The 2015 Legal Beagle took place on Saturday, March 14, 2015.
