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.

When I finished my collegiate cross-country and track career, I felt burned out and unmotivated to continue running. As a result, I quit running for over 2 years and, as expected, lost a lot of conditioning during that time. I was out of shape. Eventually, when I decided to start running again, I needed a coach and motivation. Enter the guys from My coach Will lit the fire in me to get fast again! In a little over 2 years time, he took me from a high school level fitness to beating my college PRs in the 5k and 10k and even running well in longer races like 15k and 10 miles. With his guidance, I now have a realistic chance of qualifying for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials!

I firmly believe that this team at can do the same for you - whether your goal is to take down old PRs, win your age group at a local 5k, or be competitive on a national level.  They’re the best.
