The Shades Crest Baptist Church pastoral staff and Recreation Committee met today and have made the decision to cancel the High Country 5K. We believe it is in the best interest of our church and community to go ahead and cancel this event now. With the outbreak of COVID-19 and a number of confirmed cases in the state of Alabama, as well as the Governor declaring a state of emergency, the health of our community and nation must come first. We thank you for your support and look forward to you joining us in the future.

On April 4, 2020, Shades Crest Baptist Church will host its 19th Annual High Country 5K Race and 1-Mile Fun. This is one of the most popular 5K races in all of Birmingham and was voted 2nd Most Popular by the Birmingham News. Besides the great mountaintop views, our 5K race features great community support, chip timing, sentries at each mile calling out times, water available at the midpoint of the course, a free 1-Mile Fun Run for kids 7 and under that begins at approximately 9am (No charge for FUN RUN), t-shirts guaranteed for the first 300 runners, a FREE Pasta Dinner on Friday night, April 3 at 6:00 PM (for all registered runners and their families) and a FREE Pancake Breakfast immediately following the race (also free to all runners, friends and family members.) Whether you are running in this event for the first time or if you are one of the many who run this race every year, please join us for a great day of fun and fellowship.
