- Join us for the 2017 Noah's "Blaze the Trail" 5K Trail Run through beautiful Jackson Lake Island, home of Spectre, one of the movie sets for BIG FISH! This race benefits The Noah Foundation, Inc. and New Hope Academy, helping children with learning differences and disabilities in the Central Alabama area. We are blazing the trail with innovative strategies, therapies, and technologies for these children. Like the children we serve, this trail run offers so many unique aspects for a run! You will experience the lakefront, wildlife, Spectre outskirts, and woodlands. Your admission includes the perk of spending the day exploring Jackson Lake Island after the race, including fishing, kayaking/canoeing (bring your own), picnicking, birdwatching...lots of activities!
