Run one, run all to “Runnin’ Around Downtown,” a 5K and 1 Mile Bubble Fun Run/Walk hosted by your neighbors at First Metro Bank on Saturday, March 4, 2017!

Runners and walkers of all ages are invited to participate in the 5th Annual Runnin’ Around Downtown benefiting Shoals Scholar Dollars. Dreams are coming true for many local students thanks to the $11,500 raised by this event!

The 5K, which begins and ends at First Metro Bank on Pine Street, allows runners to enjoy a charming route through historic downtown Florence. New this year, the 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk is a one-of-a-kind BUBBLY journey as bubbles guide runners to the finish line. The 5K begins at 8:00 a.m. while the 1 Mile Bubble Fun Run/Walk starts at 9:00 a.m.

Early registration pricing is available now through Sunday, February 19th. Runnin’ Around Downtown race perks include chip timing, a dri-fit shirt for pre-registered 5K runners, medals for the top three finishers in each age group, and a $250 prize to the school/classroom with the most participation.

"We would like to extend a sincere thank you to all of the participants who generously donate their time to make a difference for Shoals Scholar Dollars,” stated Rodney Howard, First Metro Bank President & CEO. “Your dedication to Runnin’ Around Downtown allows First Metro Bank to continue our desire of supporting neighbors throughout their educational journey as we treasure the opportunity to see local students succeed.
