High Country 5K- CANCELLED

Sat April 4, 2020 Hoover, AL US 35226 Directions
High Country 5k Cancelled

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.

Here Are Your Options:

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.
