Alabama > Troy Odyssey Half Marathon & 10K
Troy, AL

   

Date

Saturday, November 19, 2011
Cancelled for 2011


 
Event Details

Runners get the chance to run the fast, flat streets of this southern Alabama town that's home to Troy University at the second annual running of the Troy Odyssey Half Marathon & 10K, which will feature an out-and-back course that starts and finishes at the university's football field, Movie Gallery Stadium, where runners will also get to see themselves on the stadium jumbotron as they cross the finish line.

Open to both runners and walkers, both races start at the stadium, and the half marathon takes runners on numerous twists and turns through the city, along tree-lined streets through the university's campus and through its surrounding neighborhoods. All proceeds from the race will go to benefit the locally based nonprofit Pike Region Child Advocacy Center, which works to prevent and respond to child abuse with a range of counseling and support services.
