Get ready to run, Birmingham! It’s time to see what we’ve become.
Our specialized marathon course is a beautiful run through our city unlike anything you’ve run before. The course showcases Birmingham’s growth, touring downtown, highlighting the new hot spots as well as the traditions the Magic City is known for, before heading into Homewood and Mountain Brook. This one-loop course keeps runners energized as you make your way throughout Birmingham on a course all its own!
Our half marathon course is entirely downtown. It will take you on a tour of the up-and-coming areas of Birmingham passing historic landmarks and so much more of Birmingham.
Runners looking for less mileage are in luck, as BHM features a relay option. Relay teams can run the full course featuring five legs.
The BHM fun run is a one-mile tour of downtown Birmingham beginning at Railroad Park. Anyone is welcome to run the BHM fun run, and children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by an adult.
We also have an after party for everyone to enjoy right after you cross the finish at Railroad Park! Join us after the race for Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q, live music from a well-known regional headlining act (stay tuned for that announcement!), a kids zone, and more!
The best part? All proceeds benefit Magic Moments, the only wish-granting organization devoted exclusively to children in Alabama with chronic life-threatening illnesses and Children’s of Alabama. Lace up your shoes and join us April 14th as we run for the children who are chasing a cure.
