This is a challenging 21K loop with a double-loop option for a 42K. Consisting of mostly single track trail, the loop will take you to every corner of the park and showcase all three of the rock crushers that give the race its name. Ruffner Mountain is an old mining site in urban Birmingham that has been reclaimed by nature and is now maintained as a nature preserve. Trails are technical and incorporate 4,500' of elevation change across the single 21K loop. Course will be marked with sprinkler flags, survey tape and signage at turns. Runners may switch between the 21k and 42k distances at any time before the race by notifying race officials. The Exceptional Foundation is once again providing handmade, one of a kind finisher's awards for the 21k. The 42k will have a new surprise finisher award!
This is a 100% charitable race. All proceeds go to Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve to help them continue the great work they do. Because this race is for charity, we do not issue refunds. If you cannot make it, consider it a donation to this amazing nature preserve.
This race will probably sell out this year!!! Sign up early. If you are registered, but realize you can't make it, please delete your registration on Ultra sign up. This will allow another runner the opportunity to enjoy this awesome event.
