The 5th annual Magic City Half Marathon Weekend was the biggest and best yet!!! With over 1,700 racers and with a 2014 venue move to Regions Field – home of the 2013 Southern League Champion Birmingham Barons – the 2015 event proved to be a whole new racing experience for the City of Birmingham!
Over the first five years our event weekend has been the fastest growing half marathon in the South! And with perfect running conditions, great swag and tons of excitement on and off the courses, we expect even bigger growth in 2016!
Our events benefit the Ruben Studdard Foundation for the Advancement of Children in the Music Arts.
The Magic City Half Marathon Weekend features great music, post-race craft beer, entertainment and of course a fantastic run in the heart of Birmingham.
The marquee running events include The Magic City Half Marathon and 5K as well as the mile fun run / walk for all ages!
All running events will take place in Downtown Birmingham around Regions Field – home of the 2013 Southern League Champion Birmingham Barons.
