About the Race
The inaugural Birmingham 3 Mountain Stage race will be held on three mountains in Birmingham. The first stage will be at Ruffner Mountain, the second stage at Red Mountain Park and the Final Stage at Oak Mountain State Park. The three mountains are within a 15 minute drive from the Thursday afternoon Package Pickup on Highway 280 at Mountain High Outfitters.
The Stage Race will be held over three consecutive days and will equal 50 total miles. The races will be very Demanding. All three stages will be primarily on single track trails and some of these trails are very technical. Stages one and three will have some very steep climbing. This race will not be a "walk in the park." Some of the trails used at Oak Mountain have never been used in a race.
We have added a Two Day Stage Race for Saturday and Sunday for those that cannot make the Friday Stage. Entry fee does include a tech shirt and there will be awards for the top three male and female runners.
Runners may enter only one stage at a reduced price but will not receive race shirts or be eligible for awards.
