Break-A-Leg 5k

Whether you're hoping for a Red Ryder BB gun, a leg lamp, or some pink bunny pajamas for Christmas this year, start your holiday season at the Orpheum Theatre's inaugural Break-A-Leg 5k! We're theming this fun new 5k around everyone's holiday favorite, A Christmas Story, The Musical, which takes the stage at the Orpheum on November 25. 

The 5k course will start and end at the historic Orpheum Theatre and the post race block party will be full of holiday cheer! Dust off your Christmas sweaters & Santa hats (or your pink bunny pajamas) & put your best foot forward to see if you can win a "major award" in our costume contest! 

You won't want to be left out in the cold on this race! Sign up now and we will see you on South Main in the heart of Downtown Memphis for the Orpheum's Break-A-Leg 5k on November 23!
