Who We Are

BHM26.2 is Birmingham’s newest race series benefitting Magic Moments and Children’s of Alabama on Sunday, April 14th. Comprised of a full marathon, half marathon, team relay, and fun run. BHM26.2 brings a new course to Birmingham, including a marathon course that has no repeats or loops.

Our specialized full marathon course kicks off at Railroad Park and showcases Birmingham’s impressive growth and diverse cityscape taking runners on a tour through the traditions the Magic City is known for: Children’s of Alabama, Vulcan Park and Museum, The Birmingham Zoo, Avondale, Sloss Furnace, Alabama Theatre and winds back into Railroad Park!

The half marathon will take place entirely downtown where runners can see Birmingham’s history and growth first hand as they run by the Lyric Theater, The Pizitz Building and Rotary Trail.

Relay teams will run the full course divided into 5 legs.

The fun run is a one-mile tour of downtown Birmingham and is open to all ages; however, children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by a registered adult.

Everyone will come together as they finish at Railroad Park for the after party, featuring Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q, live music, and Kids’ Zone presented by FunSource.

The best part? All proceeds benefit Magic Moments, the only wish-granting organization devoted exclusively to children in Alabama with chronic life-threatening illnesses, and Children’s of Alabama.

Lace up your shoes and join us April 14 as we run for the children. To sign-up and view the course map, visit bhm262.com.  #DoItForYourself #RunForTheKids
