The event will begin at 8:00 am, with registration beginning at 7:00 am in the parking lot of Hospice of West Alabama. This is a Tuscaloosa Track Club certified course. Registration forms for pre-registering are available at the Hospice of West Alabama office or may be completed online by clicking the Register Now button. The registration fee is $20 and the first 150 people that register will receive a free t-shirt. Pre-registration participants may pick up packets at the Hospice of West Alabama office from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm the day before or beginning at 7:00 am the day of the event.
The HOWA 5K theme is STARS in our HEARTS. Participants are able to run/walk in memory or in honor of the STAR in their HEART. Signs will be available for participants to individualize and wear pinned to the back of their shirts throughout the day. Also, at the end of the race participants will be able to put the name of their loved one on the STARS in our HEARTS display board.
There will be something for everyone. Enjoy shopping with local vendors, live music, face painting, sidewalk chalk, and a bubble activity center. Also, participants will be eligible to win awards and will be entered into a drawing for door prizes. Make plans to join us for a morning of exercise, fun, and remembrance.
All are invited to share in this special day and we hope you will join us in making this year’s HOWA 5K the biggest and best ever!
