The 7th Annual Magic City Half Marathon & 5K will be the best year yet!! The 2016 event exploded in popularity with more than 2,000 athletes! The Half Marathon & 5K each had over 1,000 registrations and we look for the 2017 event to be even bigger.
Over the first six years our event weekend has been the fastest growing half marathon and 5K 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 2017!
Our events benefit the Ruben Studdard Foundation for the Advancement of Children in the Music Arts.
The Magic City Half Marathon Weekend features great swag, 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.
