In an attempt to balance the impact of trail races, in 2016 we moved to limit the total number of races to 3 per year. The funding from these races assists with operational expenses such as public restrooms, staffing, programming materials, and supplies.
That being said, on Saturday, October 7th, Ruffner will host the annual Crusher Ridge Run Fundraiser presented by the Birmingham Ultra Trail Society. Please be aware that on race day parking will be limited, but you will be able to use the new sidewalks implemented by the City of Birmingham that lead up to the Preserve. Keep in mind that while the Preserve remains open to the public, the trails will be utilized for the race. Also, please be mindful of the flags which mark the trails. Please do not attempt to move these.
Let's all respect each other and have a great race!
Thank you to the Birmingham Ultra Trail Society for their continued support of Ruffner Mountain.
