3rd Annual Tuscaloosa Half Marathon Is Just One Week Away [VIDEO]
Registration for the 3rd Annual Tuscaloosa Half Marathon is open and spots are filling up fast! The race will be held at 7am Saturday, March 7 at Tuscaloosa Amphitheater.
Along with the 13.1 mile half marathon and one-mile fun run, a 5K has been added to the race weekend this year! The half marathon course will start and end at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater and will run by some of Tuscaloosa’s trademarks such as Denny Chimes, Bryant Denny Stadium and along the Tuscaloosa Riverwalk. The course is USA Track & Field certified and is rated easy to medium.
Co-Race director Kelsey Colglazier said,
We are so thrilled to host the 3rd Annual Tuscaloosa Half Marathon and are even more excited for the addition of the 5k. Our race weekend now provides runners at all levels the opportunity to participate in a race that makes such a difference in the community. Each participant truly has the chance to run for a purpose.
Of course all race finishers will receive a medal, but not just any medal. This year race organizers have probably designed the best looking finisher's medal ever!
After the race, participants can enjoy food from Jim 'N Nick's, beer, chocolate milk provided by Publix, and Chick-fil-A cookies at the Post Race Party! There will also be massages from Massaged Life & Wellness Academy and stretching assistance from McCracken Family Chiropractic, kid's activities, inflatables, live music, and more!
ReadBamaRead and the Kiwanis Club of Greater Tuscaloosa are again the race charities. The THM has invested an outstanding $120,000 in two years for these local children’s charities.
