The Anniston Runners Club (ARC) and our members invite you to our premier annual event- The Historic Woodstock 5K and Kidstock 1K!  The 2022 race has been named the RRCA Alabama State 5K Championship!  Woodstock is a fun, healthy, community event where more than 1000 runners and walkers come to shake their tail feathers! Go ahead and mark your calendar for August 6, 2022 for the oldest footrace in the southeast! 

Woodstock is an exciting 5K with world class start/finish lines, our famous finish on Woodstock Avenue, and a totally groovy post-race celebration with food and fun!  IT has been 10 YEARS since the course record has been broken by Male and Female runners.  We are returning the CASH!  The individual with the best time for female or male that breaks the course record will receive an additional $500!  That is a potential of $1000 total for the overall winners!  

Don't forget to check out our ever-so-popular Team Challenge! Team runners have a chance to win a cash prize for the team with the most participants and trophies for the fastest male, female, and coed team, as well as the team with the most spirit!

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!
