Lace-up your running shoes and support the ASO!

The Alabama Symphony Orchestra is excited to announce the Tchaik 5k (pronounced "CHAI-k" and short for "Tchaikovsky"). We’ll provide the playlist! Complete your socially distanced 5K run or walk between May 23 & 30 and receive a Tchaik 5K t-shirt while supporting the Alabama Symphony Orchestra.

In May, the Alabama Symphony Orchestra was scheduled to perform Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony. Unfortunately, due to the world health pandemic, the ASO was forced to cancel these performances. In our new normal of staying home, we are grateful to be experiencing some amazing spring weather and a renewed love for exercise and being outdoors.

Participants must register by May 23 to receive a t-shirt. T-shirts will be mailed after May 30.

What is a Virtual Race?

Virtual races give runners and walkers the flexibility to complete the race at any time, at any pace, and in any location. Complete the race inside on your treadmill, or outside in your neighborhood!

Track your time and compete with others in our Strava Club or complete the race on your own time. You can even just register to receive a race t-shirt. The choice is yours! We encourage all levels of participation.

In the time of social distancing, the Tchaik 5K is a great way to stay active, engage with the community, and participate in some healthy competition while supporting the Alabama Symphony Orchestra!
