Welcome to the 29th running of the Ellis Porch Statue to Statue 15k. Starting in the shadow of Vulcan's statue and finishing near the Statue of Liberty, the race winds its way through the scenic neighborhoods of Mountain Brook, Alabama. The course gently rolls and is generally downhill for the first six miles. Runners then head up a pair of hills that are among the most challenging you'll find. The reward for climbing the hills is a fast mile-and-a-half downhill finish that's sure to generate the quickest splits you've ever run. Yes, it's a challenging course but you haven't run Birmingham until you run the race we like to call The South's Toughest 15k!

This race is hosted by the Birmingham Track Club (BTC). In addition to many other benefits of membership, current BTC members receive a discounted entry to this race. If you are not already a member of the BTC, you will have the option to join when you register for this race. More information about the BTC is available by selecting Birmingham Track Club on the menu.
