Join us for the Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Association’s third annual "Running of the Balls" 5K, a brisk run for all ages through the streets of historic Plaza Midwood under the lights from hundreds of decorative Christmas light balls.

We'll start at Resident Culture Brewing Company, with race time set for 7:15 p.m. The course loops through the neighborhood and back to the brewery, where we'll have a post-race mixer.

T-shirts are available for purchase for $15 on Race Day and are not included in the race fee.  All net proceeds from the race and t-shirt sales go to Smith Family Wellness Center and Eastway Middle School.
