Saturday's Will May 5K & Trails for Tails 10K isn't your average Tuscaloosa race, this one has a post race party with Moe's barbecue, beer and a live band!

A run for the cause too! Your participation supports the May Dog Park, an area at Sokol Park which has become a local favorite for pets and people to enjoy together!

Race Director Dr. Guy May of the May Veterinary Clinic talks about the event:

This is an opportunity for us to give back to Tuscaloosa- a community I grew up in and a community that has been so caring and supportive to our family these past three and a half years following our son's tragic death. This event is also our main fund raiser for the Will May Foundation- proceeds raised will go towards the capital improvements to the Will May Dog Park.
