January 19 Birmingham Parkside District/1st Avenue South & 12th Street South Event: 2019 MLK Day 5K Drum Run-Birmingham Location: Birmingham Parkside District/1st Avenue South & 12th Street South About: Starting and finishing on Birmingham’s Southside Park District, race participants come from diverse populations that include all demographics, races, cultures, genders and creed to celebrate the meaning of the holiday in a fun and fitness way. The race features drumlines from the Birmingham metro area schools and organizations that will line up along the race course to keep the beat as the runners and walkers make their way. Imagine a reverse parade!! Additionally, we are promoting the benefit and love of fitness. Birmingham, Alabama is the cradle of the Civil Rights Movement that continues to blossom as a diverse city with emerging and progressive citizens. The running community has evolved in the city which has encouraged fitness and fun for all groups. There is a running event for every holiday and season of the year. One national holiday with no race was Martin Luther King Day. With most Americans having the day off of work and school, this is a perfect opportunity to bring the diverse Birmingham area community together for a road race and celebration. When each organization signs up as a team and becomes an approved beneficiary of the race, $5 of each team member's registration will be returned to that organization for use in community efforts of its choice. Example, if 100 people register under Team X, we will send a check for $500 to Team X’s organization. Get your team/organization signed up today!! This year’s race features a 3.1-mile “FLAT, FAST, OUT and BACK” course providing a scenic, challenging and upbeat route through the southside of Birmingham.
