Road Race 2020

*Due to COVID 19 Virus, the Games have been postponed. For our Road Race athletes, you may still compete in any of the races listed below. We will also be adding a few more races that are later in the year. This will give you an additional opportunity in case any of the listed races are canceled or you feel your health/safety might be compromised during this period of the virus outbreak.

 

*The Alabama Senior Olympics does not host its own Road Race.*

For Alabama Senior Olympics, we are using five Road Races that are being held around the state. After all road races  have been completed, times will be compared with other athletes that have registered with the ASO and the top three in each division will be awarded an ASO medal. All ASO athletes completing a 5K or 10K road race will qualify for the 2021 National Senior Games. Athletes may also qualify for the 2021 Nationals by completing any road race during 2020 and reporting their race directly to Nationals by filing a "Limited Event" form.

 

*Packet/Bag pickup*

We are attempting to have a table at the different race locations for athletes to pick up their packet/bag. Athletes do not need these to participate in the race. The bags will contain athlete's t-shirt and items donated by sponsors. If there is no Alabama Senior Olympics registration table at the event, the athletes bag will be mailed to them. Each athlete will receive one bag.

*To qualify for the Alabama Senior Olympics, participants must register with the Alabama Senior Olympics and with the host of the Road Race in which the athlete will participate.*
