Helen Keller Festival 5 Mile Run

The Helen Keller Festival is an annual week-long festival in downtown Tuscumbia, the birthplace of Helen Keller. The festival's calendar of events is full, including opening night of "The Miracle Worker" (a must see play for anyone, but especially anyone who lives in the Tennessee Valley), a 27 mile bike ride, a car show, and, of course, a 5 mile run.

The 5 mile run was Saturday morning, June 26, 2010 at 8:00 AM in downtown Tuscumbia. This run is a HOT, hilly, 5 mile run. The overall winner was Hirbo Hirbo of Florence in 28:27. The female winner was Sandy Lynch of Florence in 33:40. The masters winner was Stacey Lemay of Florence in 32:02. The female masters winner was Cheryl Self in 42:01.
