Russell Forest Run – 12th Annual
February 27, 2021 | 7:45 am - 11:00 am
Runners remember, as of last year, we have a new course for most of the Russell Forest Run. The course takes you under highway 63 and for the 10Kers offers a more spectacular view from Heaven Hill! Take a look at the new course map!
Entry fee is just $40 per runner/walker (increases to $50.00 after midnight on the 28th) and includes, the long sleeve T-shirt, the famous after-party at The Stables with live entertainment, cold beer, and our Famous Grits Bar, as well as the awards ceremony.
The finish line is closer to The Stables on the former outbound part of the race. The changes will give runners a different feel and some new scenery for repeat runners. After the cannon start at Catherine’s Market, the differences to both races will become very obvious!
Registration for the 2021 runs is open! Over the past 11 years, the Russell Forest Run has donated nearly $90,000 to the Alexander City Schools Education Foundation. Come be a part, bring your running/walking friends for a very good cause – plus, in the end, it is fun!
(We’re hoping the coronavirus pandemic allows our event to take place and if not, we will plan accordingly. You are our top priority and we’re mindful of that as we continue to prepare for our race weekend. We will update participants as needed and hope you stay safe & healthy.)
