The 2017-2018 XTERRA Parks of Alabama Trail Run Series presented by Black Squirrel Events kicks off September 30th, 2017 at Noccalula Falls Park & Campground.

Course Description:  Distance Options 15K or 8K on the Black Creek Trails. Great welcoming venue with beautiful scenery and views surrounded by the natural attractions of Historic Noccalula Falls Park. Single and double track trails that offer a challenging course to both novice and experienced trail runners. A course that opens enough for a large volume of entrants, without bottlenecks on the single track portions. Lots of elevation changes without being overly technical. A course set up for fast times at each distance. A great mixture of single track trails, small stream crossings, gravel paths and wooded bridges. This venue has plenty of parking for all participants and a great place for spectators to relax, view the race, and take in the scenery.
