Funky Monkey 5K & Fun Run

Register now for the 2018 Funky Monkey 5K & Fun Run scheduled for Saturday, March 10, 2018!  


The family-friendly Funky Monkey 5K follows a certified course on the University of South Alabama campus, and the Fun Run is a 3/4 mile run on the Intramural Fields. Top finishers in each age group receive custom Funky Monkey awards. All runners are rewarded at the Funky Monkey Finish Party where the highlight is Mobile’s Biggest Banana Split by Cammie's Old Dutch Ice Cream Shoppe. The Funky Monkey Finish Party includes great food and drink, music and door prizes.

Our 2017 event raised more than $15,000 for the Thompson Foundation, which awards grants to community organizations and scholarships to students interested in studying engineering, architecture and other technical specialties. 


Funky Monkey Charity Challenge

The Funky Monkey is also proud to host the Funky Monkey Charity Challenge. Non-profits are encouraged to recruit runners and walkers to participate, and a $1,000 grant is awarded to the charity with the most support through registration.
