Oak Mountain Trail Run


XTERRA Oak Mountain Trail Run

Oak Mountain State Park

May 19, 2019




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 . It will also serve as a point-earner for the 2019 XTERRA Alabama Trail Run Series.
