Schools Offer Support (SOS) is a nonprofit organization that provides volunteer services and financial support to families in the Birmingham Public Schools community. SOS was founded in 2008 by a group of parents that wanted to work with students to build a stronger community through acts of kindness. You can read more about our mission on our website.

During the pandemic, through generous donations, SOS was able to assist families in our community with more than $40,000 in grocery gift cards, monthly food boxes, laptops for graduating seniors, and financial assistance for childcare, medical, and utility bills.  This annual race is our biggest fundraiser of the year and your participation will help SOS to continue supporting families in our community.

We are very excited to be able to offer an in person race this year!  We will also continue to offer a virtual option, but please note there will be no awards offered for those competing virtually.  The 5K course is USATF certified.  Both the 1 mile and 5K course take the participant through the neighborhoods around Seaholm and end on the track.  The 1 mile race will start at 9:00 am the 5K race will start at 9:05 am.    

T-shirts are available for pick up only in Birmingham, MI.  Packet pick up location and dates to be announced.

Awards: Overall male and female (5K), top male and female student from each BPS school (5K and 1 Mile), top male and female BPS employee (5K and 1 Mile).   Age group awards for the 5K, Under 30, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80-89.  Awards will only be given to those who participate in the in person race.  

Early Packet Pick Up will take place on Saturday, September 25th from 4-6 pm at Seaholm High School, near the doors to the pool.  Please use the parking lot off of Cranbrook Road.  Packets can also be picked up starting at 8:00 am on race day near the starting line.
