Eagle Ridge Weekend Recap

 

logo

This weekend, we hosted the 2nd Annual Eagle Ridge 50k, half marathon and 5k at the beautiful Guntersville State Park. Guntersville State Park is a 6,000+ acre park with over 30 miles of single track trails. Lake Guntersville State Park is also referred to as the most beautiful place in Alabama and the "Crown Jewel" of the Alabama State Park system. Our events featured some gorgeous views, big climbs, and fast and fun racing. Multiple course records went down this weekend despite rain 24 hours before the race.

One of the things we love about this race is seeing people enjoy racing at all levels and distances. It truly is an all day community running event. The Guntersville State Park Lodge provides discounted rooms for runners to stay at the night before the race. We have volunteers cooking soup and chili for runners to enjoy post race, and we have numerous volunteers out on the course supporting runners in their race pursuits. Please enjoy some of our favorite photos courtesy of John Alderman.  


Thank you to all runners and volunteers for making this weekend spectacular. We look forward to having you back next year.

    You guys put on a great event. I'm just honored that you keep letting me help out and be involved in them. Summer plans are scheduled around Grand Viduta, Wild Thangs, and Wade Mountain. Love running in your events, and we really enjoy working them as well.

If this time last year someone would have said to me, "By April 2016 you'll have run 3 5Ks and will be running 15 miles every week (and enjoying it!)," I'd have laughed and made a joke about being chased by a scary clown. But, here I am, just finished my 3rd 5K with a time a little bit better than the last.  I'm really glad RunningLane encourages beginners. As someone who has never run or even been very athletic, it's nice to have guidance and a place to get my questions answered. Big thanks to my coach, Michael for setting me up with a program that I can stick with and challenges me.  My program is just that…mine.  It is tailored to my fitness level and ability and having someone to check in with each week keeps me accountable. It’s working!  In 14 weeks with my coach and RunningLane my BMI has dropped 5 points, my cholesterol went from over 200 to 165, and my resting heart rate has lowered because my heart is healthier and happier!  Thank you, RunningLane!
