Russell Forest Run – 12th Annual
February 27 | 7:45 am - 11:00 am
12th Annual Russell Forest Run
For 2021, we are adding a new feature to the Russell Forest Run! The 10K and 5K runs will still offer runners a chance to join us in person at Russell Crossroads on February 27th, but for those who can’t join us in person, we are offering a virtual component. The 10K will begin at 7:45 and the 5K will soon follow. The virtual option is a “timed” run anywhere event. You will need to complete the full 10k distance during one activity, not multiple combined activities. Times will be accepted beginning Saturday (2/20/2021) through Saturday (2/27/2021). Times can be automatically updated using the RaceJoy phone app or manually entered on the results page.
From the starting line to post-race, 2021 Russell Forest Run runners can expect a few changes, but the outcome will be the same – raising those much-needed dollars for the Alexander City Schools Education Foundation. More details are becoming available, and registration is now open at russellforestrun.com!
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 course map!
Entry fee, for all options, is just $40 per runner/walker (increases to $50.00 after midnight on the 26th)
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 live 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.)
