Congratulations to all our racers and thank you to all the volunteers!
The XTERRA Oak Mountain Trail Runs truly has something for everyone. Long-distance runners can choose to race on a half-marathon (20.6K) course. Others can opt to participate in the 10.3K 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 20.6K will receive a free entry to the XTERRA Trail Run World Championship in Hawaii in December. It will also serve as a point-earner for the 2018 XTERRA Alabama Trail Run Series.
Join us for an exciting morning of XTERRA racing at XTERRA Oak Mountain. We are looking for people who have a few hours to spare to help with the event. Volunteer Check-In will be at the XTERRA Expo. All volunteers will receive an XTERRA crew support t-shirt, drinks, and lunch.
If interested please email or call the XTERRA Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer [at] xterraplanet.com or 808-521-4322. Hope to see you there!
