6th Annual Run for Kids Challenge

6th Annual Run for Kids Challenge

Presented by Mountain High Outfitters at the Summit at Oak Mountain State Park

100% of race proceeds go to Camp Smile-A-Mile, Alabama’s program for children with cancer.

This is the perfect run for a “First-Ultra” or anyone who just wants to see what a trail race is like. If you have been wanting to try a 50K or longer run, this is the event for you. The race will be held on the new Lake Trail and Rattlesnake Ridge Trail behind Double Oak Lake, the swimming and canoeing lake. The trail circles behind the lake then up along the ridge at the south end with gently rolling hills. There are are quite a few roots but not technical terrain and the trail is easy to run. (No trail shoes needed.) The 6.277 mile loop will pass a water only aid station at about mile 2 the main aid station at Cedar Pavilion every 6 miles so supplies and water are never very far away. There will be a cookout featuring Logan Cook’s famous Bar B Que following the 50Ks and 12 Hour run. Come out and give it a try. Your entry fee goes to a great cause and it will be a lot of fun.  

The Races:
The 12 Hour Challenge Trail Race:  This race is simple to explain. You just run as far and you can in 12 hours. (You do not have to run 12 hours.)
The 50K Trail Race:  Runners circle part of the lake trail and Rattlesnake Ridge Trail for 5 laps to the finish. First one wins. Distance: 31.385 Miles.
The 10K Challenge:  This is the fun event. You simply run one lap of the course. If you feel like running further then just keep going. You can run as far as you like, as long as you like up to the 12 hour cutoff. You are not running for trophies but you will have a lot of fun.
