Completed in 1958, Alabama State Route 210, aka Ross Clark Circle,
was the first "ring road" in the United States, and it just happens to be
the perfect distance to host a half marathon.
Come "Run America's First Circle" - a USATF Sanctioned Event.
Run the 5K, 10K, or 1/2 Marathon.
Or, run both the 5K and the 10K (Dothan Double).
Better yet, run all 3 races (Circle City Challenge).
HARD CUTOFF FOR HALF
Due to the high traffic on Ross Clark Circle, the 1/2 Marathon will have a HARD Cutoff of 3 hours.
We will need to sweep runners every 45 minutes at the 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 checkpoints.
Cutoffs are: Mile 3.25 - 7:45 am, Mile 6.5 - 8:30 am, Mile 10 - 9:15 am, Mile 13.1 - 10:00 am.
There will be pacers, including a 3-hour pacer.
