The Blow Away 5K is an annual event dedicated to raising awareness and funding research for cystic fibrosis. The 3.1 mile, USTAF certified course runs through the picturesque, downtown streets of Trussville, AL. Local businesses help support the Blow Away by donating food and drinks for our runners, as well as goodies for the runner bags and donate many door prizes for our runners. The Blow Away 5K could not be possible without our awesome sponsors and supporters!
The race started in 2010 when 3 local families living with CF got together and decided they wanted to do more to find a cure. Knowing that many potential treatments were in the research pipeline, the families came together to start a road race to benefit CF care and research. The race was an instant success and continues to grow with each passing year.
