The Anniston Runners Club (ARC) and our members invite you to our premier annual event – the 36th Annual Historic Woodstock 5K and Kidstock 1 Mile! Woodstock is a fun, healthy, community event where a record 1,591 runners and walkers came in 2015 to shake their tail feathers for others. Go ahead and mark your calendar for August 6, 2016 for the oldest footrace in the southeast!

We have been chosen once again as the Road Runners Club of America’s Southern Region 5K Championship race. Woodstock is a challenging 5K with world class start/finish lines, our famous up-the-hill finish on Woodstock Avenue, and a totally groovy post-race celebration with food, music, and fun!

Don’t forget to check out our ever-so-popular Team Challenge! Team runners not only receive a registration discount, but also a chance to win a $750 cash prize for the team with the most participants. All in all, we hand out over $2,400 in cash prizes!

Please enjoy the hospitality Annistonians and Alabamians are famous for. We promise you won’t leave Woodstock disappointed- our runners, volunteers, and community guarantee it!
