We Need Volunteers

We need YOU (and 250 of your closest friends) to volunteer for The Birdtown Half Marathon! We're looking for course marshals, start line and water stop volunteers! Visit the Volunteer page for more information.

Follow us on Twitter

The Birdtown has a Twitter page, too. Come follow us @TheBirdtown for news, updates and inspiration as you train. We are limited to 140 characters per post but you'd be amazed at how much we can pack in to keep you updated!

From the Race Director

Well, we are off and flying! As of mid-February we have 235 people registered with interest continuing to grow. I am very excited to announce that North Memorial Health Care is now our title sponsor! I am looking forward to partnering with North Memorial and their strong interest in getting more involved with the community. Make sure to check out our sponsorship page so you can get to know all of our wonderful sponsors. I will be updating the sponsorship page as things progress so check back often. I will also be adding information about The Flock and training ideas for the different race distances. What is The Flock? The Flock will be a way for the race to recognize the half marathon participants who have started and completed in every Birdtown half marathon from year 1 to year 100. The race committee and I are working out the details so keep your ear to the grapevine aka Twitter and Facebook. I want to encourage everyone to join us on May 17th. Participate, volunteer or cheer!

This is going to be great!
