The 10th Annual Tuscaloosa Mayor's Cup 5K & 10K races are on the way with a preview on what the all important t-shirt will look like!

This community-wide tradition continues to give back to our school kids, as this 5K race has raised more than $170.000 for the Tuscaloosa Pre-K Initiative, according to the event's website.

New for 2016 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Mayor's Cup in T-Town, an added 10K race option for those seeking an extra challenge!

This is one of the biggest 5K races of the year in Tuscaloosa, which just adds to the excitement before and after the race. If you're a newbie, this a good break-in and you won't be alone! The added distance of the 10K has regular runners talking too.

After you rock that course, join in for the 'Post-K After Party!' Participating downtown businesses will have deals on merchandise, food and drink to participants who present their race bibs.
