XTERRA Oak Mountain Trail Runs – 5/10/20km
OAK MOUNTAIN, PELHAM, ALABAMA | MAY 17, 2015 – 8AM
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. Trail Runner magazine ranked Oak Mountain as one of the top 25 “Crown Jewels” of running trails across America in 2011.
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.
Note: Event t-shirts are guaranteed for all athletes registering by April 30. Walk-ups and registrations after May 1 are not guaranteed a t-shirt. You must be present to receive awards.
