Join us for the FIRST EVER Tinsel Trail Trot 1-Mile Race and Fun Run presented by Meri Beth Mabry - State Farm Agent! This is a fun and unique way to see trees on the trail and enjoy holiday decorations in Big Spring Park!

The races will start at 5 pm at the red bridge by the cu-ldu-sac on Spring and Spragins in #DowntownHuntsville. Runners will turn left to go past the fountain in the Big Spring Grotto, run toward Church St, cross over into Big Spring Park West, run down around the Rotary Fountain, and finish at Skating in the Park.

Heats of 10-12 will run at a time so there will be plenty of room on the sidewalk. Registration is $10 and includes a chip timed 1-mile run. Bib numbers will be picked up before the race on Sunday.

Register here: https://legacy.imathlete.com/events/TinselTrailTrot2017
