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.
Team Rocket Tri Club has partnered with the U.S. Space and Rocket Center to produce a reverse order Off Road Triathlon to showcase the property surrounding the USSRC and The Huntsville Botanical Garden. Huntsville’s growing need for a family friendly mountain bike/running trail located near UAH and close to town, makes this a perfect venue. This annual event will provide charitable funds for the U.S. Space and Rocket Center Space Camp Scholarship Fund.
As a reverse order Sprint Distance Triathlon, this fun race begins with a 3.1 mile run that is on a mix of dirt, gravel and pavement surfaces. Racers will transition to an 8 mile mountain bike course that slips through a wide variety of hardwoods, cedar and pine groves. You will get to see numerous airplanes, rockets and space equipment as you wind though a course that looks flat but will fool you with climbs and twists, creek crossings and jumps. Finally racers will be able to cool off with a 200 meter swim in the Aviation Challege swim area. Never deeper than 4 feet, tired swimmers have the ability to stand up and catch their breath if needed. This swim venue is considered beginner friendly. Awards will follow the race in the shade of the covered pavilion, affectionally known as the Bubble at the USSRC.

The funds raised by this event will be split by the chapters based on the affiliation designated by each race participant during registration. In addition to the exciting individual competition, there will be a “rivalry” competition between the fans of each school and the winning chapter will the awarded a grand trophy and bragging rights for the next year. This will be an exciting competitive atmosphere with the thrill of the race and the anticipation of being on the eve of football season! The race will originate from Clearwater Lake in Owens Cross Roads, a beautiful private lake nestled in the valley just east of Green Mountain. The lake was designed and is used primarily for competitive water skiing. The very clear water and relatively shallow depths allow for excellent conditions for the swim portion of the competition.
