We Love Homewood Day 5K

This year’s We Love Homewood Day 5K will look a little different with reduced crowds and physical distancing, but we are so happy to bring you a live race. Your health and safety is our top priority. For this reason we have COVID-19 precautions in place for our participants and volunteers for the In-Person We Love Homewood 5K. This includes, but may not be limited to, physical distancing and facial covering requirements.  All In-Person 5K race participants will be chip timed and will start in small waves to allow for distancing. Would you rather participate virtually? No problem! We have added a virtual 5K option this year. 


Enjoy Chip Timing for the same great price!
