•All registered participants will receive a race bag filled with lots of cool things including a race weekend technical race shirt.
•Marathon and half marathon finishers will receive a finisher's cap at the finish line. Anyone registering at the Expo will be given a red race bib so folks at the finish line will know you are a late registrant. Expo registrants are not guaranteed finisher amenities. In past years we have had so many people register on race weekend (which is a great thing), that we have run out of finisher amenities and were unable to give the runners that registered early theirs.
•All race finishers will receive a commemorative Mercedes Marathon or Mercedes Half-Marathon finisher’s medal that resembles a large, heavy hood ornament. Expo registrants will receive an undated ribbon on their medal.

Boutwell Auditorium in downtown Birmingham
1930 8th Avenue North
