Event Details

The Alabama Symphony Orchestra is excited to announce the Tchaik 5k (pronounced "CHAI-k" and short for "Tchaikovsky"): the ASO's first virtual 5k and a way to pair Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony with our new stay-at-home routine! All levels of participation are welcome. Complete the Tchaik 5K inside on your treadmill, or outside in your neighborhood. Track your time and compete with others in our Strava Club, complete the race on your own time, or just register and get a t-shirt. The choice is yours! 

On May 29 & 30, 2020, the ASO was scheduled to perform Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony. Unfortunately, due to the worldwide health pandemic, the ASO was forced to cancel these performances. In our new normal of staying home, so many people have rediscovered a love for the outdoors. Why not support music in our community while enjoying some beautiful spring weather? 

The ASO will provide a playlist of all 46:20 minutes and 4 movements of Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony. Participants can complete the virtual race anytime over the week of May 23-30 (when the ASO would have performed this work in the concert hall). 

As a participant, you will receive a race day t-shirt, a digital race bag, and a great feeling that you are supporting the ASO, all while taking good care of your health. There will be prizes for individual and team fundraising!
