8th Annual Head Over Teal 5k/10k and Fall Festival

Head Over Teal Race & Fall Festival

Nothing rings in autumn like a fall festival. Make plans to attend the 8th Annual Head Over Teal 5k/10k Race and Fall Festival this month.

Head Over Teal Race

The festival and race will take place Saturday, September 23, at The Preserve in Hoover, Ala. The morning starts off bright with the run/walk at 8 a.m. If you’re feeling competitive, rest assured that your pavement pounding won’t go unnoticed. The race is GPS accurate, and your registration fee includes chip timing. For a discounted price, register as a team with five or more members.

Single-registrant prices start at $35 for the 5k, but prices increase after September 10. Children 13 and under can register for $20. Register before September 13 to be guaranteed a commemorative race tee!

After registering, pick up your pre-race packet September 21 from 4–7 p.m. or September 22 from noon–7 p.m. Pickup is at The Preserve Town Hall.

Fall Festival

After the race, stick around for a family-friendly fall festival. Held just one day after the official first day of the season, this festival celebrates the best of fall traditions. Visit the different booths and activities, including face painting, inflatables, and pumpkin painting. There’s nothing spooky about this ode to autumn.

The Laura Crandall Brown Foundation

Head Over Teal isn’t just about long runs and family fun. The event is put on as a fundraising and awareness-building initiative by the Laura Crandall Brown Foundation. This non-profit organization fosters research, awareness, and support for gynecologic cancer. Like pink for breast cancer, teal represents ovarian cancer awareness.

By participating in the Head Over Teal event, you help support research for early detection of ovarian cancer. Lace up your sneakers and start training for a Birmingham cause that touches the lives of those who need it most.
