An active child is a healthier, more confident child!
Family friendly event for runners/ walkers of all experience levels and ages! A great place to run your first 5K or set a PR!
Beautiful new location and 5K route that highlights the new home of the Birmingham Barons, Regions Field! The route features some of Birmingham’s favorite places, such as Pepper Place, and finishes with a run through the stadium!

“Perhaps most importantly, physical activity develops children’s self-esteem and confidence. Their ability to overcome challenging situations improves and they simply enjoy a better, sunnier outlook on life. In addition, our adolescent children can develop further social skills such as leadership and empathy.” – Uta Pippig
