Welcome to WKRG’s “Mark Your Calendar” for Monday, February 18, 2019. Today, John Nodar welcomes Cindy McMillan from Bay Area Runners to talk about the 29th Annual Joe Cain Classic 5K Run, One Mile Run and Moon Pie Dash.
This event will be held Sunday, March, 3, 2019 at 8:00 a.m. in downtown Mobile. This race has consistently attracted an increasing number of runners, walkers and wheelchair participants each year since the inaugural event in 1991. The Joe Cain Classic is much more than a 5K run. It’s a great family event featuring a one-mile walk/run and a quarter-mile “Moon Pie” dash for kids of all ages. The 5K and One Mile are certified courses for those interested in competing for state records. After the races, there is a Mardi Gras block party with refreshments, music and a visit from Joe Cain’s widows. Most importantly, the race is an opportunity to provide financial assistance to adaptive athletic programs in both the Mobile and Baldwin counties. These organizations provide assistance to handicapped individuals to allow them to compete in athletic competitions.
