The Russell Forest Run gives runners a different look from the traditional, flat-street run. The course, constructed of clay, sand, and gravel, was designed for electric cars and bicycles and is much softer and more forgiving than asphalt. The laid back feel of Russell Crossroads with its town green, Catherine’s Market, SpringHouse, The Stables and the Discovery Center are inviting to all attendees. The Russell Forest Run benefits The Alexander City Schools Education Foundation, where last year we were thousands of dollars is donated for use in the local schools. We hope to see you at this year's Russell Forest Run!
