Race To The Heights 5K

Saturday November 16th, 2019

Birmingham, AL

Official Website


The 11th annual Race to the Heights 5K will take place rain or shine!

We look forward to providing a fun and safe race day experience at the 11th annual Race to the Heights 5k.  To that end, we are working with local health officials and monitoring the CDC guidelines to ensure that each protocol is up to date and relevant the day of the race.  Details regarding current social distancing measures will be communicated closer to the race.

Race to the Heights 5k is an event that provides an encouraging atmosphere that moves the community to both engage in a challenging activity together and benefit several organizations making an impact locally. We are excited to offer both a Trail Course and a Road Course. Both courses will take place at the Grants Mill campus of Church of the Highlands.

The Road Course starts at the North Entrance of the parking lot and is both pet and stroller friendly. The scenic Trail Course traverses the woods behind the church building and is designed to challenge more experienced runners. The Road Course is certified by USA Track & Field.

Each registrant will receive a performance race shirt, and the Top 3 Male and Female finishers from each course will receive prizes.
