We are excited to announce our Spring 5K will take place Saturday May 11, 2013 at 8am. This race is open to the community, and all runners, walkers, ages and levels are WELCOME! Please join us for a fast, flat race course followed by fun festivities! DJ Steve Sills will provide the race tunes needed for you to get pumped up and ready to RUN. He and his fabulous dance team will lead an optional group warm up at 7:30am in Marconi Park. There will be a special start for community racers, followed immediately by the Girls on the Run program participant start.
Girls on the Run 5K medals will be awarded to the first 300 participants to cross the finish line.
Besides setting a PR on this flat downtown course, the sweaty smiles of joy from over 150 girls finishing their first 5K beside you, will make it a special 5K for all who participate. After the race, there will be delicious snacks and carbs, more music, and fun kids activities include bracelet making, picture frame decorating, line dancing, Zumba and more. Whether it is your first race, or your fastest, plan to stay and celebrate the 5K.

Age group awards in 5 year increments will immediately follow the race at approximately 9:30am. Must be present to receive award.

New this year, we are looking for SOLEMATES to run in our 5K and raise money in support Girls on the Run Birmingham programming so that we can spread the message of healthy living to young girls across our area. The Solemate who raises the most money by our 5K May 11, will win this brand new Horizon Treadmill!!
