Road Race 2020

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

For Alabama Senior Olympics qualifying, we are using five Road Races that are being held around the state. After all road races have been completed, times will be compared and the top three in each division will be awarded an Alabama Senior Olympic medal and qualify for the 2021 National Senior Games. Athletes meeting the Minimum Performance Standards will also qualify for the 2021 National Senior Games. 

 

*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.*
