Event Description

Cahaba Medical Care invites you to participate in the 9th Annual Cahaba Medical Care 5K (formerly known as the Watermelon Run / Rockets & Rapids 5K) to be held on Sunday, July 10th in Centreville, Alabama.

All proceeds from this event will benefit Cahaba's Community Centers & Community Outreach Programs. The funds raised from this event will impact the lives of many families in need throughout the communities we serve by providing those facing financial hardship with access to food and basic needs.

ABOUT CAHABA MEDICAL CARE: Cahaba Medical Care is a nonprofit Community Health Center with 21 clinic locations throughout Central Alabama in Bibb, Perry, Chilton, Jefferson, and Wilcox Counties. We’re headquartered in Centreville, Alabama, approximately two blocks from the Cahaba River. Founded in 2004, we’re celebrating 18 joyful years of service to our communities! 

ABOUT THE EVENT: The Cahaba Medical Care 5K welcomes all ages and skill levels - feel free to race hard for your age group prize or come out to walk/jog your first 5K with many other first-timers! The race starts and ends at the Cahaba Medical Care Community Center, crosses the beautiful Cahaba River twice and includes an extended scenic view of the Cahaba River, as well as historic uptown Centreville. We will have liberal hydration stations with sprinklers, so please come on out and brave the heat!

Racers should plan to come early and stay late for the awesome before and after party festivities! The 5K is held each year in conjunction with the Celebration on the Green community event, which includes numerous on-site vendors and activities starting at 5pm. At the 5K finish line, we’ll be serving ice-cold watermelon slices and a delicious meal… then, stick around for the best Independence Day Fireworks Celebration this side of Disney World at 9pm, courtesy of our partner hospital, Bibb Medical Center, the cities of Brent & Centreville, and South Bibb Parks & Recreation!
