The 5K Certified race runs along the Causeway and starts and finishes at the USS ALABAMA

Battleship Memorial Park. Each runner’s race bib will bear the name of one of Alabama’s Fallen Heroes since 9/11/01 on their race bib.  You also have the opportunity to list your own Hero as well.  This is the only race in this region of Alabama of this kind.  Growing every year, don’t miss the opportunity to show that you “will never forget” and run in Honor of one of Alabama’s Fallen Heroes.  Names of the fallen are listed on the 5K

Run Shirt so don’t miss out on the opportunity to order one of those.  For $15 you can be Blue Star Salute Supporter and get t-shirt.  

On-line registration can be completed at www.eventbrite.com.  Forms are also available for pick-up at McCoy Outdoors, Run-N-Tri or Fleet Feet in Mobile, AL or Running Wild in Fairhope,
