 Mobile, Ala. – The City of Mobile and several community partners are hosting a first-of-its-kind event later this month to celebrate significant progress on the Broad Street Revitalization project.

Lope the Loop will be held on Saturday, July 29, and will start with a ribbon cutting for the reopening of Broad Street at some of the larger intersections in downtown Mobile. It will also feature a 3.5-mile fun run/walk around the Hank Aaron Loop, followed by a community celebration at The Ice Box  


The July 29 event is open to everyone, and the fun run route is designed to accommodate walkers, runners, cyclists, strollers, dogs, and participants in wheelchairs. The check-in for the race will begin at 6 a.m. at the Ice Box, with the ribbon cutting and fun run at approximately 7:30 a.m. Lope the Loop is supported by Loper Law LLC, Hop Hounds Brew Pub and Dog Park and The Ice Box.
