Race Information:

Fort Payne, AL – Jacksonville State University and the Little River Canyon Center is pleased to announce its 5th annual half marathon set to be held on Saturday, October 8, 2016.

Possibly one of the most scenic half marathons in the country, the certified course loops 13.1 miles on paved roads, starting and ending at the Little River Canyon Center.

To start at 8:00 am, the first five miles of the run will follow the Little River Canyon National Preserve’s incredibly scenic and sometimes challenging rim of the canyon, as the remainder winds through gently rolling farm country including Randy Owen Drive and his famous Tennessee River Music Hereford and Angus cattle ranch. Randy and Kelly Owen are often on hand at the 6 and 8 mile water station pitching Fig Newtons, energy GU and drinks but this year they’ll add a necessity. According to Kelly “Yes runners, we’ll have a port-a-potty”.

The half marathon will feature five water stations, music, ample law enforcement, shirts, trophies, finishing metals, and much more. Proceeds go to outdoor education programs and local conservation efforts at Little River Canyon.
