Register to join the 2014 Blazer Fun Run

The Blazer Fun Run winds through Railroad ParkThe 4th annual Blazer Fun Run will take place Saturday, September 20. The event consists of a 2-mile course weaving through UAB Athletics, Railroad Park, the UAB Medical District, and the UAB Academic Corridor.

Though the event is sponsored by UAB Employee Wellness, it isn't exclusive to employees. Students, friends, and family are welcome to participate, regardless of their fitness level.

Either running or walking the route is acceptable, but for those nervous about tackling the 2-mile course, training sessions will be held at 5 p.m. each Tuesday leading up to the event, meeting at UAB Hospital's West Pavilion Atrium and heading to Railroad Park.

UAB students may register for the Blazer Fun Run for $10. Early-bird registration (though Aug. 21) for non-students is $12, and late registration (from Aug. 22 onward) for non-students is $20. Participants will receive a Blazer Fun Run t-shirt.

The fun run will begin from Dowdy Field at 9 a.m. on Saturday, September 20.  Final packet pick-up and registration will take place one hour prior at 8 a.m., and a group warm-up will be offered at 8:30 a.m.

After the event, stick around Dowdy Field to relax with a chair massage, grab a bite from local food trucks, listen to live music, bounce in inflatables, and meet UAB's mascot, Blaze.
