As a precaution, the Running Buck Wild Extreme Trail Run scheduled for this coming Saturday, March 21, 2020 has been postponed until Saturday, June 13, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but ultimately want to keep everyone’s health and safety a priority. We look forward to seeing everyone in June!
POSTPONED: June 13, 2020!
The 2020 Extreme Trail Run will be held at Joe Wheeler State Park on June 13, 2020. Part of Alabama State Park's Mission is to operate and maintain recreational facilities; and to extend the public's knowledge of the state's natural environment. We strive to continue this mission and provide the public with access to our natural resources. In 2013, we started an annual Extreme 5K Race called "Running Buck Wild". The name stems from the abundant wildlife at Joe Wheeler State Park such as the Whitetail Deer. This year, due to the tornado damage the park sustained at the day use area, the race will be a 4 miler along the new trail system at the park. The race will start at the Joe Wheeler State Park Marina near the Lodge.
