The driving force behind the Russell Forest Run is to help provide educational tools for the kids in the Alexander City School System. In this time of proration, teacher cuts, and program cuts – Russell Forest Run and race sponsors have teamed with the Alexander City Education Foundation to host a challenging race, raise a few dollars for the kids, and let runners have a great race in one of the most beautiful areas in the Southeast – the Russell Forest.

From start to finish, the Russell Forest Run measures 10K and carries runners over rolling hills on sand, clay, and gravel roads that were designed for bicycles and electric cars. The scenic route starts at Russell Crossroads, takes runners near Kob’s Knob, up to Heaven Hill, and back to the finish line at Russell Crossroads. Following the 7:45am 10K, there will be a 5K run at 7:55am. Runners from across the nation claim this race as one of their top destination runs.

Our Derby Day party is like none other. We encourage everyone to wear some Derby attire, from sear sucker suits and buckskin shoes to unique hats, there are prizes for great all! We have the most awesome mint juleps, pimento cheese stuffed eggs, a sweet or two and more. If you haven’t been to Derby Day at The Stables, why not give it a try! It is fun, we do raise money for our friends at Children’s Harbor (Ask for details, but it involves you bringing a few five-dollar bills along.), and if you choose, you don’t have to spend a dime.
