Pink Up The Pace 5K & Fun Run

Join us on Sunday, November 7 for the 4th annual Pink Up the Pace 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run presented by Vulcan Materials and Benton Nissan of Hoover & Bessemer! Lace-up your sneakers to raise funds and awareness for local, life-saving breast cancer research.

Brought to you by the Junior Board of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama, this year’s event is actually two-in-one! Register for the in-person race on November 7 or the 5-week virtual event from October 1 – November 6.

In-Person Event

The in-person event features a 5K race and a “Dolly Dash” 1-mile youth fun run, which encourages kids to run, walk, bike, or “scoot” to the finish line. After the event, runners will enjoy live music, snacks, beer/wine for the adults, and field activities for the kids, including face painting, a petting zoo, and an inflatable obstacle course.

5K winners (fastest woman and man) will each receive a PUTP hat and a $50 gift certificate to Trak Shak.

Virtual Event

Can’t make it in person? Join us for our 5-week virtual event! Virtual participants can compete in:

  • A time challenge, which challenges runners to submit their fastest 5K time.
  • A distance challenge, which connects runners across the state and beyond to collaboratively reach 1,996 miles to represent 1996—the year BCRFA was founded 25 years ago.
Registration Details

Registration is $35 for adults (ages 13+) and $25 for children (ages 4-12). Children 3 and under are free. The registration fee includes an event t-shirt and swag items. NOTE: If you are registering for the virtual event, be sure to select that type of registration. Virtual participants will receive shirts via mail.
