Joe Wheeler State Park's "Running Buck Wild" Extreme 5 K

Part of the Alabama State Park's mission is to operate and maintain recreational facilities; and to extend the public's knowledge of the state's natural ennvironment.  We want to continue this mission and provide the public with access to our natural resources. Therefore, we started an annual Extrememe 5K Race called "Running Buck Wild".  This 5K will take runners across different terrains such as hiking trails, asphalt, and gravel roads.  This race will start in the picnic area at Shelter 1.  In some areas the runners will run along the great Tennessee River!  Our 2013 Extreme was a success with 150 participants and we expect even more this year!  Come join the fun at Joe Wheeler State Park.  Call us for reservations or more details (256) 247-5461!
