About This Activity

Get into the Halloween spirit at the third annual Trick or Trot 5K! The Trick or Trot 5K is a costume run that takes place on a flat course in downtown Birmingham, Alabama. It starts and ends at Sloss Furnaces, a National Historic Landmark with a web of pipes and tall smokestacks that offer a glimpse into the great industrial past of the South.

The event includes a post-race breakfast and “Bloody Mary Bar” for the adults and post-race events including music and activities for kids. Along with race awards there will be awards given for Biggest Team, Most Spirited Team (Best Costumes), Most Spirited Individual (Best Costume), and Most Spirited Kid (Best Costume).

All proceeds from the Trick or Trot 5K benefit Kid One Transport and will raise funds to provide transportation to medical care for children and expectant mothers in 43 counties throughout Alabama.
