Rumpshaker 5K

March 26, 2022 @ 8:00 am

14th Annual – Rumpshaker 5K 
March 26, 2022
Regions Field, Birmingham, AL

Benefiting: Colorectal Cancer Awareness

We are very excited to announce the 14th Annual Rumpshaker 5K to be held on Saturday, March 26th, 2022 at Regions Field, Birmingham, AL. We know this has been a challenging 2 years for so many and we are thankful for your continued support of the Rumpshaker organization. Without your support, we would not be able to carry out our mission to raise awareness and provide hope and support to those fighting this disease.  

Rumpshaker 5K In-Person Event: 
The race will have a slightly different look for 2022; all in-person 5K race participants will be chip timed and will start in small “waves” based on the runner’s estimated finish time. In-person 5K participants will be eligible for the $5 team discount along with Virtual 5K  (team discounts apply to teams of 5 participants or more). We encourage you to take advantage of one of the new categories if you or your team members are not comfortable with the in-person event. 

Rumpshaker 5K Virtual Event:  [More Info]
Formerly known as “My Rump is Sleeping In” we have now expanded this category to include the Virtual 5K Race. This is an excellent option for those who would be more comfortable completing the Rumpshaker 5K on their own or with a smaller group of friends and family. You simply pick your date and your route. This option provides flexibility as it is a “do it yourself” 5K.  You are encouraged to share your photos with us so we can post them on our social media outlets. This category is eligible for a $5 discount for each team member (teams of 5 participants or more). You will receive the 5K T-Shirt as part of your registration package.

COVID-19 Precautions:  
We will make every effort to conduct this race in accordance with CDC, state, and local guidelines. CDC Guidelines on how to protect yourself: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html.  We will rely on each runner to conduct themselves with best practices during the global pandemic, including practical physical distancing, avoiding handshakes and high-fives, and wearing facemasks, etc.
Racers will not be expected to wear masks during the race, but need to wear masks prior to and after they complete their event.
Our volunteers will wear facemasks and those working food area and water stations will also wear gloves. 
Additionally, volunteers will be wearing masks at registration, and any time we expect brief interactions closer than 6 feet apart.
Racers will line up the starting line 6 feet approximately apart in waves based on expected finish times.
The race will be chip-timed and will start in small waves.

Please consider bringing your own water (BYOW) this year.  Each Water station will have hand sanitizer.  Water will be poured into cups by masked and gloved volunteers for the participants to pick up off the table.
Everyone has been through a lot this year with the pandemic. We believe it is time to get outdoors and be together… but we also believe that we must do it safely. We are expecting everyone to abide by best practices with us. We know that there are lots of differing views but if you are joining us for this race, please graciously respect the safety and views of everyone around you, and let’s have a great race.
If there are more updates, we will update you at registration and via email.
