About This Activity

National Veterans Day in Birmingham hosts a 5K Family Fun Run/Walk in order to raise funds for veteran charities and raise awareness of all the events held in Birmingham during Veterans Day weekend.

In addition, we have a 10K Veteran Challenge for the runner who would like a new challenge.

The 10K Veteran Challenge is a RUCK race with an emphasis on teams. (Individuals may run the race, but we encourage you to find a team of 4 or more.) Rucks are weighted backpacks or vests - 40 lbs. for the men and 25 lbs. for the women. Team time will be the average of all team participants. (*Due to availability of 40 lb. versus 45 lb. vest at sporting good stores, we have decreased the men's weight requirement.)
