The Run Talladega Half Marathon Course will be unique at every turn! There are no loops or down and backs. The start line will be on East Street right in the heart of our Historic Town Square. Along the way, you will pass through the nostalgic Talladega College, the old Bemiston Community, the Silk Stocking District, and the Alabama School for the Deaf and Blind campuses. Run Talladega ends near the Regions Bank on North Street W with a relaxing elevation decline as you stride for the finish line. Please check out the video on our home page for a view of our course. Our Course is certified with USATF (AL18050JE) recognized by RRCA. Solid Rock Race Timing will time our event. (You can Check them out at www.solidrockracetiming.com) The Talladega Police will ensure safe conditions. You will have four hours to complete Run Talladega!
The Course will be marked very clearly. We will have mile markers every mile and clear directions at every turn. We will have four aid stations on the course. There will be restrooms to find relief and friendly attendants to offer you water and Gatorade at each station. Our third station will offer some nourishment along with the hydration. At the end, there will be plenty of post race nourishment and restrooms.
Parking will be simple to find. Three parking lots within 200-400 yards or less of the start line will make it easy for everyone. We will be able to access the First Bank of Alabama, Piggly Wiggly, and Talladega Chamber of Commerce parking lots. The churches on North Street are accessible too, but the walk may be just a little further than the others but not much! We are asking that you not park at the Regions Bank since we are ending near their parking lot on North Street West.
