Bigfoot Bio Bash is a family friendly trail run at the beautiful Cheaha State Park. Come enjoy the day's events for all ages, and support Cheaha State Park! Proceeds from the event will support nature programs at the park.
The course is mainly comprised of trails, but there are small segments of the race on gravel and asphalt. The 5K begins at the Bald Rock Boardwalk and follows along the loop by Bald Rock Lodge. It continues down the Bald Rock driveway onto the Cheaha Express (yellow blaze). The course then completes the Upper Spring Loop (green blaze), and connects back to Cheaha Express. Participants will then follow the Service Road to to Tower Road where the course goes around the motel and takes runners to the BRAND NEW Bigfoot Trail. This trail was built with help from the JSU Geography Club, and will be officially unveiled after the 5K. Race participants will be the first to use this one-of-a-kind Leave No Trace Trail! The Bigfoot Trail finishes near the Observation Tower at the highest point in Alabama. Who doesn't want to say they outran Bigfoot while racing to the highest point in Alabama?
All participants in the 5K will receive a long sleeve t-shirt. All participants in the 1 mile fun run will receive a short sleeve t-shirt. Fun Run participants age 12 and under will receive a participation medal. Additional short sleeve t-shirts are available for purchase.
