Description
The inaugural Mountain High Outfitters - Birmingham Stage race will be held on three mountains, in three parks, in Birmingham. The first stage will be at Ruffner Mountain Park, the second stage at Red Mountain Park, and the Final Stage at Oak Mountain State Park. 
The Stage Race will be held over three consecutive days and will equal 50 total miles. The race will be very demanding.  All three stages will be primarily on single track trails and some of these trails are very technical.  Although none of the mountains are over 600 feet above the surrounding terrain, Ruffner and Oak Mountain will have some tough climbs and descents.  This race will not be a "walk in the park."  Some of the trails we will use at Oak Mountain have never been used in a race.
Runners may also enter the 2 Day, 2 Mountain Race on Saturday and Sunday, to be run concurrently with the 3 day race.  Runners can also sign up for any one stage at a reduced price but will not receive race shirts or be eligible for awards.
Course Info

Stage 1 - Ruffner Mountain -  Although Ruffner mountain is only about 400 feet above the surrounding terrain, it is a very rugged hill.  The trails are steep and rocky and in some places quite technical.  The race course is approximately 8 miles long so the first stage will be two laps of the course. Runners will return to the start/finish area aid station before heading out for the second lap.  A water only, unmanned aid station will be located at approximately mile 4 and 12, however, runners should carry enough water to complete the 8 mile loop just in case.  This stage will be harder than the elevation profile suggests.  You may be amazed at the color of the soil and rocks on Ruffner.  It is "RED."  Your shoes will also be red at the end of the race.
