Dothan Half & 5K


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" and earn yourself a Golden Peanut medal. Why a peanut medal? Because Dothan is the Peanut Capital of the World, and the Runner Peanut is the most popular peanut grown in the Wiregrass area.
