Kick off the new year at the annual Forging Families 5K/10K and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, Jan. 7. The event is presented by Sacred Selections at Shelby County Arts Council. Sacred Selections is a not-for-profit organization that assists families in their quest to adopt a child. More than $30,000 has been donated for this cause within the past two years. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
Join hundreds of runners at the Resolution Run Saturday, Jan. 7, presented by Birmingham Ultra Trail Society. Proceeds from registration fees and donations will go to Red Mountain Park. There will be two distances marked out for running, a 5K route and a 10K route. Start times vary for each route, so everyone can finish around the same time. For those unfamiliar with Red Mountain Park, there will be trail routes, but some of the trails are converted railroad paths and are not very technical. Register online before race day for $30 or register in person on race morning for $35. Learn more at runsignup.com/race/al/birmingham/resolutionruns.
