Places to Run Huntsville: Aldridge Creek Greenway

We love our growing Huntsville Greenway system. The Huntsville area currently has over 73 miles worth of trails and greenways. By 2023 the city has budgeted for approximately 44 more miles worth of greenway. As we continue to move through our “Places to Run Huntsville” series, it is necessary to mention one of our favorite greenways, Aldridge Creek. Aldridge Creek is included in many popular Huntsville races including but not limited to The Huntsville Half Marathon, Rocket Man Triathlon, Lobsterfest 5k, and the Ditto Landing 10k .

Aldridge Creek is one of the most trafficked greenways in the Huntsville Greenway system. It is also one of the longest greenways in Madison County. We love Aldridge Creek Greenway for it accessibility and convenience for many types of runs. You have the ability to go traffic free for over 5 miles. This is a great location for long runs, tempos or any faster paced workout.

I've been running since April of 2011, and I got into it mostly for weight loss purposes.  I quickly realized that I loved running and became interested in getting better and setting goals.  Each season brings different challenges, and I like being coached by people that coach me based on my personal goals, rather than a generic website that makes us all one type of runner.  RunningLane is perfect for runners seeking specific training tailored to their own personal goals.
