Are We There Yet?
Christmas lights. Family. Food. Friends. Gifts. Jesus. Running. For more than two decades, runners have been racing down the streets of Meadow Brook in Shelby County at Christmas time. What began as a beautiful, empty race weekend on the calendar now is a holiday tradition. Dr. Robert Cosby began the Meadow Brook Run in 1995 as an evangelistic outreach to the running community. Local vendors and volunteers from all over the community have joined in the tradition. December 15, 2018 will be the 24th Annual Meadow Brook Run beginning at Valley National Bank (formerly US AmeriBank) Meadow Brook, 1100 Corporate Parkway, Birmingham. The 5K starts at 9 a.m. and the Fun Run at 10 a.m.
The Meadow Brook Run race fee is voluntary. The suggested amount is $15-$25 and all proceeds benefit the “Jesus Video Project of Alabama” which shares the Good News of Jesus as well as other ministries including Alabama Teen Challenge, First Priority of Greater Birmingham and Young Life. Come join in the fun- whether you are a runner or not- and make this one of your family holiday traditions. For more information visit www.meadowbrookruns.org. †
