Race Details

The Just A Call Away 5K and Fun Run welcomes runners of all ages and abilities. You can opt for a chip timer for the 5K if you want to add a competitive spark. You can create or join an existing fundraising team, or simply take the distance solo at a comfortable pace, enjoying the sights of the historic downtown Birmingham route. Strollers and pets are welcome, so this race is good for the whole family. The Fun Run covers 1 mile around Sloss Furnaces and is not a timed event.
