17th Annual - Rumpshaker 5K 
March 22, 2025
Regions Field, Birmingham, AL

Benefiting: Colorectal Cancer Awareness

We are very excited to announce the 16th Annual Rumpshaker 5K to be held on Saturday, March 22, 2025, at Regions Field, Birmingham, AL. We know this has been a challenging 3 years for so many and we are thankful for your continued support of the Rumpshaker organization. Without your support, we would not be able to carry out our mission to raise awareness and provide hope and support to those fighting this disease.  

Rumpshaker 5K In-Person Event: 
The in-person 5K race participants will be chip-timed. In-person 5K participants will be eligible for the $5 team discount along with Virtual 5K  (team discounts apply to teams of 5 participants or more). We encourage you to take advantage of one of the new categories if you or your team members are not comfortable with the in-person event. 

Rumpshaker 5K Virtual Event:  [More Info]
Formerly known as "My Rump is Sleeping In" we have now expanded this category to include the Virtual 5K Race. This is an excellent option for those who would be more comfortable completing the Rumpshaker 5K on their own or with a smaller group of friends and family. You simply pick your date and your route. This option provides flexibility as it is a "do it yourself" 5K.  You are encouraged to share your photos with us so we can post them on our social media outlets. This category is eligible for a $5 discount for each team member (teams of 5 participants or more). You will receive the 5K T-Shirt as part of your registration package.
