About This Activity

The Russell Forest Run 10K carries runners on a certified course(USATF AL10003JD) over sand, clay, and gravel roads that were designed for bicycles and electric cars. The scenic route starts at Russell Crossroads, takes runners near Kob’s Knob, up to Heaven Hill, and back to the finish line at Russell Crossroads. Following the Russell Forest Run there will be a post-race party complete with our Famous Grits Bar, ice cold beer, the awards ceremony, music, giveaways and more. The trophies, in keeping with our forest theme, are made from wood taken from the Russell Forest and are very unique to our event.
