Unfortunately, we will not be able to hold this event in 2017 due to lagging registrations. We strive to put on the highest quality events and that would not be possible with the current registration numbers, so we have had to make the tough decision to cancel for this year. We hope to be able to bring this event back again in future years! Thanks for understanding. 

If you already registered for the 2017 event, we will be processing full refunds of the registration fee starting October 17, 2017. 

Call it White Lightning, call it Mountain Dew, or Hooch.  Whatever you call it Moonshine is a part of the Heritage of Birmingham, AL and the perfect setting for The Moonlight Bootlegger 5K!  We will be coming out for our third installment of this truly unique event on Nov. 11th, 2017  Just like our bootleggin’ ancestors, see if you can make it through the moonlit woods to get to the stompin’ grounds, where you can enjoy some moonshine cocktails and flatfoot it to live music..
