in Centreville, AL on July 6th!

We have some EXCITING new changes in store for our 6th annual 5K race! What was formerly known as the 'Watermelon Run' now has a new name --- join us on Saturday, July 6th for the Rockets & Rapids 5K & Fun Run!

All proceeds will benefit the Cahaba Medical Care Foundation Community Center & Community Outreach Programs.

The Watermelon Run welcomes all ages and skill levels - families, kids and strollers are all welcome to join! The race will begin at 7pm at the Cahaba Medical Care Community Center located at 195 Hospital Drive. The 1-mile Kids’ Fun Run will begin immediately after the 5K at the BMC walking track located directly across from the Community Center.

Racers should plan to come early and stay late for the awesome before and after-party festivities! Directly across from the Community Center will be the Celebration on the Green, a community event starting at 3PM that vendors, food, live music, games and other fun activities!

At the 5K finish line, we’ll be serving ice-cold watermelon slices and delicious BBQ... then, stick around for the awards ceremony, followed by the best Independence Day Fireworks Celebration this side of Disney World at 9PM, courtesy of Bibb Medical Center, the cities of Brent & Centreville, and South Bibb Parks & Recreation - Hope to see you there!
