Darter Dash 5K/10k
Birmingham Ultra Trail Society (BUTS) and Turkey Creek Nature Preserve are teaming up to host the Darter Dash 5K/10k on Saturday, October 21. It is a glorious run through the trails at one of Birmingham's great outdoor treasures. These trails include some moderate elevation and you'll run along some beautiful stretches beside Turkey Creek. Only a very short period of each race will be on pavement. The Preserve protects a stretch of the creek that is the only place in the world where the Vermilion Darter, as well as other Darter species, live. It is truly a unique and beautiful place.
The 10k will start at 8 am, and the 5k will follow at 8:15 am. We'll have a post-race award ceremony featuring truly unique awards. All proceeds go to fund educational programs at Turkey Creek Nature Preserve.
