BHM26.2 Race Series & After Party
April 14, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 2:00 pm$25 – $260
Presented by Medical Properties Trust, the BHM26.2 race series will take place Sunday, April 14, 2019 and will benefit Magic Moments and Children’s of Alabama. Comprised of a Full Marathon, Half Marathon, Marathon Relay and Fun Run, each race will start and finish at scenic Railroad Park. BHM26.2 is the only fully charitable marathon in Alabama and provides a fresh, new course to runners. The course takes participants past iconic Birmingham landmarks with no repeats or loops – making BHM26.2 the only non-looping Birmingham marathon.
Runners and their friends and family will celebrate crossing the finish line at the official BHM26.2 Party of the Year After Party sponsored by Stifel from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Attendees will be entertained with live music from Party of the Year from the producers of The Black Jacket Symphony and local band August Night. Guests will also enjoy the Kids’ Zone by Fun Source, BBQ pork meal provided by Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q, refreshments from Coca Cola Bottling Co., Tito’s Handmade Vodka and a FitVine Wine Tasting.
Last year’s inaugural event saw more than 2,000 participants and raised more than $250,000 for local children who benefit from the care, services and experiences provided by Magic Moments and Children’s of Alabama. All proceeds from this year’s event will again benefit Magic Moments – the only wish-granting organization devoted exclusively to children in Alabama with chronic, life-threatening illnesses – and Children’s of Alabama, which provides care for children in every county in Alabama.
