We´re excited to present the 3rd Annual XTERRA Alabama Coldwater Mountain Trail Race!
Runners registration for the 2014 XTERRA Alabama Coldwater Mountain 9.6/3.6 Mile Trail Running Race is OPEN! We will have a cap on this race of 200 Participants! We are placing a cap on this event for 2 reasons... 1 parking availability, 2 getting that amount of runners into the woods (this race has reached capacity each year... if you are interested in participating please register soon)!
For directions to the park: Coming from I-20 (Birmingham) get off at Exit #179 and turn left back over the bridge, go 1.7 miles turn right onto Coldwater Pump Road (sign on 202 currently just says Coldwater Rd / turn will be just a touch after Hwy 78), go .2 turn right (freshly paved asphalt road / entrance leading to trail head), go 1.1 miles when you get to the top of the hill you will be at the trail head (Start / Finish Line)!

This is great single and double track off-road running experience. The race will start on a street (required for spacing) but will soon lead into the woods. The terrain is made up of a little bit of everything, rolling hills, steep hills, single track, double track, rocks, along with some technical sections. The course is beautiful and offers something for every runner truly wishing to ´ditch the city´.
9.6 Mile Course
Looking at the "Coldwater Mountain Bike Trail Map": The race will start on the street (required for spacing) and quickly lead into the woods. You will enter the single track trail on Baby Bear "A" (going clockwise) headed to "B". Once you get to "B" turn hard left onto Mama Bear. Stay on Mama Bear all the way to "D" and up to "E" (not going onto Papa Bear). Once you get to "E" turn hard left (going clockwise) onto the main trail (this will be the split for the 9.6/3.6 milers). Take "E" to "F" headed towards "Start of Bombdog" going to "G", "H" and "I" (Rock Slot) and stay on this route all the way back to "C". Once you get to Baby Bear (9.2 Miles) you will turn left onto Baby Bear and stay on this route all the way back to the start / finish.
