The XTERRA Oak Mountain Trail Runs truly has something for everyone. Long-distance runners can choose to race on a half-marathon (20K) course. Others can opt to participate in the 10K and 5K races. All three courses will take place on the award-winning trails at Oak Mountain State Park in Pelham, Alabama.

All age-group winners for the 20K will receive a free entry to the XTERRA Trail Run World Championship in Hawaii in December. It will also serve as the season finale for the XTERRA Alabama Trail Run Series.
