Sunset on Lake Martin
100 mile Trail Run along the shores of one of America's most beautiful lakes, entirely on the Russell Forest Trail System.
And there is a 50 Mile option and the 27 mile Fun Run, it is a race, but it will be fun.
March 21 and 22, 2015 - Registration opens October 1, 2014
The Race is along the shores and through the forests on Lake Martin, near Alexander City, Alabama
The course is 100% on single track trails, carriage paths and gravel roads. (cars not allowed on most gravel roadways)
This is the perfect course for a first 100 or 50 mile trail race. The race will consist of four beautiful, totally runnable, 25 mile loops. Each loop will have 4 aid station stops, but there are only two aid stations. The entire 100 mile course is serviced by two aid stations and both allow drop bags. Race planning will be a snap. The Lake Martin 100 is destined to become the standard for a "First 100" or a first 50. No 100 mile race is easy but we have done everything possible to insure your success. The course has a mix of about 75 % single track and 15% carriage paths and 10% gravel roadways, great views of the lake and rolling hills. Most of these hills are less than 100 feet in elevation but they are relentless with total elevation gain over the 100 miles in excess of 13,000 ft. There will be no need to time walk/run cycles. The hills will tell you when to walk and when to run. Crew and Friends can cheer you on for numerous places around the course all less than 4 miles from the start and finish. Join us for a great race experience. The Lake Martin 100 is a 2014 Trail Runner Magazine Trophy Series Race.
