    Join us at the Fluffy Duck! Get down in the muck and run like a duck!

    We're not really sure what that line means but it sounds good so we are going with it! But for real, let's get muddy! With the coming of spring the foliage will be blooming, eggs will be hatching, and we'll be running!

    The Rocks and Roots Trail at Alum Creek is the only trail built by runners for runners! One of the unique elements of the trail is that every season brings new experiences on the trail. Our Winter Series is famous for it's bitter cold and snow! The Firefly pits runners against the dark of night. Hoot is HOT, and Squatch brings the best of the fall color change. Now with the Fluffy Duck we encourage you to strap on your gators and get ready for a muddy, mucky run!
