The annual Half Marathon & 10K hosted by Highlands College, is a celebration of exceeding personal records and our encouraging running community in scenic central Alabama. Join us on Saturday, April 13, to start strong and finish better than you started at Black Creek Park in Fultondale, AL.  
Runners from every walk of life are invited to run this challenging and fun race on a shaded, refreshing wooded trail on the Five Mile Creek Greenway, just outside of Birmingham, AL. 

Beautiful trees and a creek take runners through a memorable route on one of Alabama’s historic Rails to Trails courses. 10K runners race through the City of Fultondale on this out-and-back trail. Half-marathon runners run through Fultondale and into Gardendale and Brookside on a mostly flat route in the heart of rustic Alabama.  

Sign up today to conquer what you thought you couldn’t and “press on” with Highlands College—America’s Ministry Leadership University!
