The Russell Forest Run is an out and back race that carries runners on a certified course over sand, clay, and gravel roads that were designed for runners, bicycles, and electric cars. The scenic route will still start at Russell Crossroads, and will still take runners near Kob’s Knob, up to Heaven, and back to the finish line near The Stables at Russell Crossroads. The 10K will start promptly at 7:45am with a machine gun blast from the Town Green at Russell Crossroads. The 5K, also an out and back, begins at the Town Green and will start with the cannon blast soon after 10K. Packet Pickup for both runs is Friday, February 24th and Saturday, February 25th at Russell Crossroads. Please follow the registration signs. Need more info – http://russellforestrun.com/
In 2021 we added the Virtual Option. For 2023, we will keep the VIRTUAL RACE option for those who can't participate in person. Separate results will be provided for virtual runners and on-site participants. You can download our app and your results will post on our site. Virtual participants not using the app will be on the honor system. They can manually update their time and receive a shirt. Please see our "Virtual FAQ" below.
