Half-Marathon Course Description
A fun mix of paved trail through the Orange Beach, Gulf Shores and Gulf State Park "back-country" along with stretches on the Gulf State Park main drive- all but about 3 miles is on the beautiful, back-country paved trail system. This system has been expanded each year since this event started, so we continue to adjust the course to take advantage of these amazing, peaceful trails.
5K & 1 Mile Run Description
Both the 5k run & 1 mile run start behind the soccer fields on the service road and proceed west on the trail like the Half-Marathon course. The 5k will turn around at 1.5 miles and the 1 mile will turn around at a 1/2 mile. Both runs go straight back to the start line, which is now the race finish line. The 5k & 1 mile run will be completely on the paved back-country trail.
