Description

National Center for Sports Safety is proud to announce the Third Annual Wine 10K Birmingham Presented by Lemak Health. This unique, point-to-point 10K is chip timed and takes runners through the heart of Homewood as they make their way from Patriot Park to Lakeshore Park Plaza. This is a USAT&F certified event (AL16007JD). 

Why are we the Wine 10K Birmingham, you ask? 
In an effort to pair something unique, fun and festive with a fantastic 10K course, we partnered with International Wines to provide something runners typically love... MIMOSAS! And voila, the Wine 10K Birmingham was born! Our intention is to bring you a fast 10K, while providing a post-race experience that is second to none! We welcome you to come out and enjoy this experience!

PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to promote responsible running, hydration stops along the course will provide water and Gatorade ONLY as provided by our sponsor, Buffalo Rock!

This point-to-point event begins at Patriot Park, and finishes at Lakeshore Park Plaza in Homewood, Alabama. Runners and walkers of all paces are welcome and encouraged to participate! 

PLEASE NOTE: You must register by 12:00 pm (noon) on Monday, February 19, 2018 to be guaranteed your preferred t-shirt size. 

PLEASE NOTE: Online registration for this event will remain open until 7:30 am race morning.
