This year's We Love Homewood Day 5K will look a little different with reduced crowds and physical distancing, but we are so happy to bring you a live race. Your health and safety is our top priority. For this reason we have COVID-19 precautions in place for our participants and volunteers for the In-Person We Love Homewood 5K. This includes, but may not be limited to, physical distancing and facial covering requirements.  All In-Person 5K race participants will be chip timed and will start in small waves to allow for distancing. Would you rather participate virtually? No problem! We have added a virtual 5K option this year. 


Enjoy Chip Timing for the same great price!

We will make every effort to conduct this race in accordance with CDC guidelines. We will rely on each runner to conduct themselves with best practices during the race, including practicing physical distancing, proper hygiene, and wearing facial coverings. Participants will be required to wear facial coverings before the race begins and after they complete the event. The race will be chip-timed and will start in small waves. At the water stations, water will be poured into cups by volunteers wearing facial coverings and gloves.

If you are participating in this fun event, please respect the safety and views of everyone around you, and let’s celebrate We Love Homewood Day together!
