February 10-12, 2017

Birmingham's Premier Running Weekend....

had made its mark as one of the most hospitable and enjoyable marathons in the country.  Athletes of all ages and running abilities are welcome to participate in one of our many weekend activities and events.  Run or walk one of our well organized Sunday races including the Mercedes Marathon, half marathon, 5 person marathon relay or our 5K event on Saturday.  Our double loop marathon course is fast and friendly offering an up close and personal view of downtown Birmingham and its surrounding attractions.  After you cross the finish line on Sunday, celebrate your running achievements at our festive post race party that has been acclaimed by Runner's World Magazine as one of the best in the country.  Come Run Birmingham!! 

Due to the upfront nature of event costs, we have a uniform policy of no refunds, transfers or deferrals to a future year.  We know that plans change and unexpected things come up, but we feel it is most fair to apply a uniform policy to all, instead of an arbitrary line of who merits a refund and who doesn't.  Thank you for your understanding.
