What makes this 5K different? Unlike previous 5K’s held in Birmingham, The LUPUS 5K FITathlon Challenge event includes your traditional 5k run/walk race and a 5K FITathlon Challenge with exercise challenges throughout its course. Exercise stations (such as jump ropes, tire runs, walking lunges, etc.) represent the FIT challenges. The event will consist of a standard 5K run that begins at 8:00 a.m. followed by the 5K FITathlon Challenge wave starting at 9:00 am that will include Fit Challenges throughout the course. This event will also include a Kids Fun Zone which features the NOBESTIY EXPO, Inflatable’s, fitness obstacle course and games for the kids and The LUPU Zone which will be located inside Sloss Furnaces. We are excited to announce that Fox 6 Sports Anchor and Reporter, Jeh Jeh Pruitt, will be the MC for the event.

The Lupus Foundation of America, Mid-South Chapter is dedicated to solving the cruel mystery of lupus while providing caring support and programs for those who suffer from its brutal impact in Alabama, Kentucky and Tennessee. Lupus is one of the cruelest, most mysterious diseases on earth – it’s known as an unpredictable and misunderstood autoimmune disease that impacts different organ systems in the body. Lupus is difficult to diagnose, hard to live with and challenging to treat. While lupus is disabling and potentially fatal, in many cases the most serious health effects from the disease can be managed through aggressive medical treatment and lifestyle changes.  www.lupusmidsouth.org

* An estimated 1.5 million Americans have Lupus       
* Although Lupus can affect men and women of all ages, 90% of individuals diagnosed with the disease are women
*  Most people will develop the disease between the ages of 15-44·
* Lupus is two to three times more prevalent among women of color — African American, Hispanics/Latinos, Asians, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islander 
* 20% percent of people with lupus will have a parent or sibling who already have lupus or may develop lupus

Fort Payne, AL – Jacksonville State University and the Little River Canyon Center is pleased to announce its 6th annual half marathon set to be held on Saturday, October 7th, 2017.

To start at 8:00 am, the first five miles of the run will follow the Little River Canyon National Preserve’s incredibly scenic and sometimes challenging rim of the canyon, as the remainder winds through gently rolling farm country including Randy Owen Drive and his famous Tennessee River Music Hereford and Angus cattle ranch. Randy and Kelly Owen are often on hand at the 6 and 8 mile water station pitching Fig Newtons, energy Gu and drinks.

New 5K Start Line Corrals:
What is a “Start Line Corral”?
The start line corral system allows for a smooth race start for participants of varying athletic abilities. You should choose a corral based on your estimated pace / finish time which will allow you to start with other participants of similar running or walking pace. Everyone who has paid the extra $5.00 will receive a timing chip, the corral system will not affect the timing of your race as your actual race time will not start until you cross the starting mat. Look for the following signs on race morning to ensure you are in the appropriate corral.

Start Line Corrals Signs (based on finish time)
• RUN 21:45 minutes or less / 7minute per mile pace or faster
• Walkers only

The “RUN 21:45 minutes or less” Corral will be a roped off section and will have volunteers assist with entry into this corral.
Runners expecting to finish the 5K with a finish time greater than 21:45 should line in behind the roped area.
Walkers will line up behind runners.

NOTE: If you are participating with a stroller and/or children, we ask that you keep your children with you at all times and that you start from the back of the “WALK ONLY” corral. This will allow your family members, and our other participants, a safer race experience.

How to wear your Bib Number and Timing Chip:
5K participants (that paid the $5 extra) will be Chip Timed to process race results and your 5K finish time will be posted for you to see. [Click Here] to see details on how to wear your Bib-Tag Timing Chip. Please wear your Bib Number on the FRONT of your shirt during the race. [Example] Remember to bring your Bib Number Race day.
