Due to COVID-19, all participants and spectators will be required to wear a mask on race day and adhere to all local and CDC Guidelines.

Thank you for your patience and support as we learn to host Red Shoe Run a little differently this year! Please contact with any questions or concerns. 

Red Shoe Run is an annual celebration of family, fundraising and awareness for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama.

Now in its 17th year, Red Shoe Run is going new distances to make a difference for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama! Red Shoe Run will be held Saturday, April 24, 2021 in Homewood, AL! This Birmingham favorite will look different this year with a socially distanced start line for our in-person 5K and 1-mile fun run, a virtual 5K and 1-mile option, and a Red Shoe Snoozer option to sleep in on race day and still support a great cause. We will top off the event with an awards ceremony!

Long live rock and roll, this fan favorite theme is back for another year as our "Rockin’ 5K" and we encourage runners to wear a fun costume! This year, our special awards for top individual fundraiser, the top fundraising team, the most spirited team, largest team and best costume will be announced virtually. Team perks include a Team Roll Call during our virtual awards ceremony.

All money raised through the Red Shoe Run stays at the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham to keep families together at a time when it’s needed most. We know this has been a challenging year for so many and we are thankful for your continued support of our mission.
