The Monkey C Monkey Run is Smile-A-Mile's annual 5K and 1M Fun Run at Smile-A-Mile Place in downtown Birmingham! This is a family friendly event open to runners, walkers and strollers, however, we encourage everyone to run as much as possible to help get streets re-opened in a timely manner. The MCMR features a dove release honoring SAM children, 5K individual and team awards, fun run prizes (14 yrs and younger), music from The Toddfather and post-race food and activities including inflatables and a photo booth.
