What makes this 5K different? Unlike previous 5K’s held in Birmingham, The LUPUS 5K FITathlon Challenge event includes your traditional 5k run/walk race and a 5K FITathlon Challenge with exercise challenges throughout its course. Exercise stations (such as jump ropes, tire runs, walking lunges, etc.) represent the FIT challenges. The event will consist of a standard 5K run that begins at 8:00 a.m. followed by the 5K FITathlon Challenge wave starting at 9am that will include Fit Challenges throughout the course. This event will also include a Kids Fun Zone which features the NOBESTIY EXPO, Inflatable’s, fitness obstacle course and games for the kids and The LUPUS Zone which will be located inside Sloss Furnaces. We are excited to announce that Fox 6 Sports Anchor and Reporter, Jeh Jeh Pruitt, will be the MC for the event.

  • An estimated 1.5 million Americans have Lupus       
  • Although Lupus can affect men and women of all ages, 90% of individuals diagnosed with the disease are women
  • Most people will develop the disease between the ages of 15-44·
  • Lupus is two to three times more prevalent among women of color -- African American, Hispanics/Latinos, Asians, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islander 
  • 20% percent of people with lupus will have a parent or sibling who already have lupus or may develop lupus
