Hound Dog Half - Free Photos @ Elkmont

Elkmont’s Trackless Train Trek Half Marathon  – aptly renamed to Elkmont’s Hound Dog Half Marathon after local hound dog, Ludivine steals the show by wandering to the starting line in time to join the runners and finish 7th overall in our inaugural event to raise funds for the track and cross country programs at Elkmont High School.

The link below tells a little of the story from our 1st ever half marathon in Elkmont, AL!

Beautiful, CERTIFIED (USATF #AL15062JD) half marathon through the rolling hills of Elkmont, Alabama.  The course begins in downtown Elkmont and heads out into the country on the rolling rural roads.  About 7-8 miles into the race, runners will move off the road and onto the old L&N Railroad bed and is now known as the Richard Martin Trail and is part of the Rails to Trails Conservancy, where they will run the final 5-6 miles of the half marathon.

There will be a custom finishers medal as well as age group and overall awards.  All participants registered by Jan 1, 2017 are guaranteed t-shirt sized specified on registration.  There will also be a special award for our 7th place finisher in honor of Ludivine’s accomplishment.

Proceeds from this race will benefit the Elkmont High School Cross Country and Track/Field programs.

Ways to Help

Stewardship – Trail Care

  • Be a Trail Care Partner! Perfect for civic, church, or social groups to care for a favorite trail on an annual basis. Adopt a favorite trail for a year, make a commitment to monitor the trail at least quarterly, and conduct light maintenance as needed. Learn more.
  • Join our Trail Care Crew! Join our team of volunteers who help build trails, clear deadfall, and reroute for safety under the direction of our Land Stewards. At least once a month we have a scheduled work day on one of our properties. Learn more.

Educations & Outreach

  • Help encourage the next generation of land stewards by assisting with environmental education programs.
  • Share your love of the trails by leading guided hikes (offered in Spring and Fall).
  • Help us with Information Booths and community events.

Events & Administration

  • Volunteering at Land Trust events means fun for a great cause! Help out at our special events.
  • If you prefer to work indoors, we’d love to have you help us in the office: word processing, phones, filing, or event preparation.
  • Concerts at Three Caves: Volunteers are needed to assist with setup before the concerts, day-of operations (such as check-in, selling drink tickets, or parking), and clean up the day after the events. Concerts will be held on June 15, July 13, and August 10. Please refer to our event calendar for upcoming volunteer needs/opportunities.
  • Moon Dance Auction Volunteers Needed: Each September, we host our party for land preservation at Three Caves, called Moon Dance. All proceeds from the event – which includes a silent auction of items contributed by local businesses – support our mission. Let us know if you interested in helping solicite or even just picking up Moon Dance auction donations from businesses around town. Any amount of time you’re able to contribute would be appreciated! Contact us at questions@landtrustnal.org to volunteer.
  • Photography Volunteers Needed: We’d love to have photos of trail care work days but obviously the focus is normally more on trail care than photography. Let us know if you are able to attend an upcoming trail care work day to take photos to document and share our hard work on the trails. Contact us at questions@landtrustnal.org to volunteer.
