MLK Day 5K Drum Run


Gathering the diverse groups in our beloved community to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in the spirit of sisterhood and brotherhood with fellowship and fitness. Starting and finishing in the 4th Avenue Historic District of Birmingham’s Civil Rights District, race participants come from diverse populations that include all demographics, races, cultures, genders and creed to celebrate the meaning of the holiday in a fun and fitness way. The race features drumlines from the metro area schools that will line up along the race course to keep the beat as the runners and walkers make their way. The race day activities includes a warm up, live music, professional timing, sponsor booths, post party and the race goodie bags with the popular MLK DAY 5K Drum Run shirt for all race entrants. When you register your nonproft/community org as a approved beneficiary team, $5 of each team member's registration will be returned to that organization for use in community efforts of its choice.
