Mobile, Ala. — The City of Mobile is hosting a free, 3.5-mile fun run this weekend for runners, walkers, wheelchair users, cyclists, parents with children, leashed dogs and more.

The Second Annual "Lope the Loop" will take participants around the perimeter of Downtown Mobile along the Hank Aaron Loop. Mayor Sandy Stimpson started this event in 2023 to celebrate the reopening of Broad Street after an extensive redevelopment project, and 170 people participated.

This year, the City of Mobile Events Department is bringing "Lope the Loop" back on Saturday, April 27. Day-of registration for "Lope the Loop 2024" will begin at 6 a.m. in the Ice Box parking lot, and the race will start at 7:30 a.m. You can pre-register today by clicking here.

The City of Mobile is also partnering with the 100 Alabama Miles Challenge, which encourages Alabamians to walk, run, hike, bike, swim, paddle, ride or roll 100 miles each year. If you register on the 100 Alabama Miles website, the miles you log during Lope the Loop will count toward that 100-mile goal for the year. You can find more information at
