March 23, 2022

TUSCALOOSA, AL. /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ –  A tide of runners will roll through T-town Saturday for the 10th year of the Tuscaloosa Tourism and Sports Half Marathon and Publix 5K. Nearly 1000 runners from 28 different states have registered for the event on March 26.

The Tuscaloosa Tourism & Sports Half Marathon is the longest distance running race held in Tuscaloosa Alabama each year. Runners get to experience the beauty of West Alabama with the half marathon course winding through the rolling hills along the Black Warrior River, the Tuscaloosa River Walk, portions of the University of Alabama campus, and some quaint downtown neighborhoods. Runners competing in the 5K will loop around Government Plaza where both races start and finish.

The Arts n’ Autism program is FRESHJUNKIE Racing’s Charity Partner for the race this year. A portion of the registration proceeds benefit this organization and other volunteer and philanthropic groups. Since the race was first introduced in 2013, $226,000 has been raised for other local charities like ReadBAMARead, the Literacy Council of West Alabama, the Boys and Girls Club and much more.

There is still time to sign up for the Tuscaloosa Tourism and Sports Half Marathon and Publix 5K. You can register or find more information at https://www.tuscaloosahalf.com/.
