Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful, Inc. has made the very difficult decision in light of the COVID-19 situation to CANCEL THE DUCK AND RUN 5K for this year. This has been a hard decision to make because of the funds lost for KALB, but the health and safety of our participants and volunteers are most important. Thank you for your patience and understanding and we hope to see you at next year’s race!


Get ready for a 5K that is a well-organized race through downtown Athens, Alabama.  You will experience tree-lined streets and our beautiful Courthouse Square as you make your way from Big Spring Memorial Park (the Duck Pond) and back again.

First 25 registrations will receive a FREE ENTRY in our 2020 Wacky Quacky Ducky Derby with a $1,000 grand prize sponsored by American Leakless Company!

First 300 registered runners will be guaranteed a race t-shirt and goody bag.  Pre-registration will guarantee t-shirt size.
