Cancellation of the 2020 Indy 5K Presented by BlueCross Blue Shield of Alabama

Due to the rapidly developing coronavirus (COVID-19), and to ensure safety for the Birmingham community, the 2020 Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama presented by AmFirst will be canceled as scheduled April 3-5. This cancelation unfortunately includes the INDY 5K on Friday, April 3rd. This decision was reached after carefully consulting with the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, Barber Motorsports Park, Birmingham City officials, and State of Alabama public health professionals.

We completely understand the disappointment that comes with having an event canceled that you’ve committed to both physically and financially. This is an unprecedented global health issue and acting responsibly to protect our runners, volunteers, spectators, sponsors, staff and community is a top priority.

We would like to donate all entry fees to Racing for Children’s, which supports Children’s of Alabama and the Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders. That being said, if you would like your entry fee refunded, please let us know.  

We appreciate your support and understanding.

Here Are Your Options:

You understand that events are expensive, even when canceled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

Donations will go to Racing for Children's
The Racing for Children’s concept was brought to life by motorsports enthusiasts and Children’s of Alabama supporters who seek to engage the community in raising funds and awareness for The Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders. Each year, Racing for Children’s honors Children’s of Alabama patients who serve as honorary crew chiefs for the Racing for Children’s race car, leading the team in the race to cure cancer.

At the Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders, we care for the overwhelming majority of children and adolescents in Alabama who are diagnosed with cancer or serious blood disorders.  We focus on three main goals- providing excellent patient care, participating in innovative and groundbreaking research and promoting the educational development of the future leaders and scientists in our field.  With its eye to the future, our dedicated experts continue to meet essential goals, among them giving our families access to the latest treatment options and most promising clinical trials without having to travel out of state. Our dreams and goals are large, but within our reach with your support.

We understand. We hope you can join us for the next year's event. 
Please give us some time to process the refund.
