We're excited to present the 1st Annual XTERRA Alabama Henry Farm Park Trail Race!
Runners... Check it out! The local Farmers Market "Helping Feed Our Community" will be up and rolling from 7:00-11:00 a.m. (stop by and support them... tons of local, special organic produce)! Check them out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jacksonvillealfarmersmarket
Here is a description of their fantastic market :
The Jacksonville Farmer's Market is a network of some of the best farmers in our region. Our atmosphere on family & community separates us from all other markets.
There are 20-30 different farms represented throughout the different growing seasons. These farmers are from Calhoun & surrounding counties. Special & unique vendors with natural gifts & abilities are participating with our farmers to bring an experience to our market that you will not soon forget.
For more information contact Aliza Cummings, the market manager, at 205-393-3510 or LuAnn Billings at 256-525-0202.
After the race head on down to Wake and Bake Pizza... they will be offering a discount to all runners!

This is great single and double track off-road running experience. The race will start in the open field (required for spacing) but will soon lead into the woods. The terrain is made up of a little bit of everything, rolling hills, single track, double track, roots, along with some technical sections. The course is beautiful and offers something for every runner truly wishing to ´ditch the city´.
Dirty Spokes will be handing out medals and prizes to our overall top 3 male and female finishers for each race. We will also be handing out medals to our top 3 male and female finishers in each age group (14&U, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70&U) -- you must be present to receive your medal we will not mail them to you.
Awards will be given out when we have enough finishers in to fill the categories. Medals will be given out to the top three finishers in each category. Walkers are encouraged to participate; however, you should be able to complete the 4.0 Mi at a 16 minute mile pace or under to receive an official time.
As always, thanks for choosing to be part of the events as well as helping spread the word about them!
Best of Luck!
