The 5K will feature some of comic history’s most evil villains and you just might get to experience the ultimate good versus evil dual during your run. After the run, there will be refreshments, activities and the chance to thank many of Prattville’s “superheroes” during their display of emergency service vehicles.

Walkers are encouraged to participate, and strollers are permitted. We just ask that you start at the back of the field for everyone’s safety.

Register for the 5K by October 19 to be guaranteed a shirt. First responder and 1-Mile Fun Run entries do not receive a shirt.


Awards will be given to the top male and female finishers, the top three overall and masters. In addition, awards will be given to the top three male and female finishers in the following age categories: 10-14, 15-18,19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 +.

Costume Contest

We encourage all participants to dress like their favorite superhero whether that’s a comic book character or a real-life hero such as the River Region’s first responders! A winner will be announced in an adult (16 and older) and child category.

First Responders

All first responders may participate for only $5. This price includes the 5K and/or 1-Mile Fun Run; it does not include an event shirt. If you wish to purchase a shirt, please register for your preferred distance at regular cost.

This discount is only for first responders; dependents are not eligible for the discount. A badge or I.D. will be required at packet pick-up to verify first responder status. If we are unable to verify status, the runner will be required to pay the additional cost to participate.
