_The 2022 Bluebird Run and Walk for Brookie B:
We’re back! After a pandemic year like no other and a Virtual 2020 Bluebird, we are coming home to the JR Alford Greenway! Remember all the hugs and handshakes you’ve had on Labor Day mornings since 2015 at the Bluebird Run for Brookie B? Let’s do it again. If you’ve just found out about us, you don’t want to miss this.
Our 5K trail course is one of the most beautiful and challenging in Tallahassee. Wide multi-use trails make a loop through the greenway, starting and ending at the trailhead. Past participants have said, “You’ll never forget your first Bluebird.”
Our 1 Mile Fun Run course is unique with an out-and-back canopy trail that crosses the Lafayette Heritage Canopy Bridge. A treat for runners and walkers alike, there is a water station at the turnaround on the other side of the bridge.
A huge tent with party lights will welcome you to the greenway as registration begins at 7:00 am. There will be free coffee, sports drinks, bottled water, watermelon, bananas and an assortment of treats including sno-cones. The LOSS Team of the Big Bend will set up a special area called Memory Lane in honor of the loved ones we have lost to suicide. There will be tables with information available from many of our local mental health care providers. Bluebird is both a fun athletic event and an outstanding community event for suicide awareness and prevention.
We expect to have a lot of walkers in this event, so we are offering entry fees both with and without timing. If you want to record an official time you will receive a race bib. If you do not want to record an official time you will not receive a race bib.
