Gathering the diverse groups in our beloved community to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in the spirit of sisterhood and brotherhood with fellowship and fitness.

Presented by The Leftover Energy Foundation Inc., this year's 8th Annual Race will be IN PERSON & VIRTUAL. We have the 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk, 5K and now a 10K! Race participants come from diverse populations that include all demographics, ages, races, cultures, genders and creed to celebrate the meaning of the holiday in a fun and fitness way. Annually the race features a lineup of drumline musicians from Birmingham area schools and organizations that will perform along the full race course to motivate runners and walkers as they make their way. Also, each drumline will receive a donation to their band booster association.

We will provide a safe event which will include a warm up, music, timing, fantastic sponsors and the race goodie bag including the official MLK DAY 5K Drum Run shirt for all race entrants. Great inspiration that makes this holiday great!

If you are a nonprofit, church group, school org, foundation or community group please register as a team and receive $5.00 back for every registered team member for your organization's community efforts.

The race website is available for registration, volunteer sign up and sponsorship. For more information please contact us via email  or at 470-444-9844
