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.

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!
