Joe Cain Classic 5K, Fun Run, and Moon Pie Dash

Course Map For the past 20 years, the Joe Cain Classic Run has been the primary focus for the Bay Area Runners (BAR), who organizes and conducts the event. There are nurses, customs agents, teachers, doctors, business owners, lawyers, construction workers, retirees, you name it, who are members of the BARs. For the uninitiated, Joe Cain is credited with reviving the Mardi Gras celebration in Mobile after the civil war. In 1968, Joe Cain Day was established as an all inclusive street celebration that anyone is welcome to join.

Joe Cain Day is celebrated on the Sunday before Fat Tuesday. The race takes place on Joe Cain Day (the Sunday before Fat Tuesday) at 8:00 a.m. in Mobile, Alabama on one of the uglier racecourses (Course Map) a runner is likely to encounter.
