Railway Marathon & Half Marathon presented by CraneWorks


Looking for a fast, certified race with a great chance for a PR?  This event is for you!  This race is great for carbon shoes too!

Starting at Black Creek Park in Fultondale, AL, this marathon & half marathon will be held on the Five Mile Creek Greenway, a rails-to-trail project located 15 minutes north of Birmingham. Runners will race through the Cities of Fultondale, Gardendale, and Brookside on this flat, fast course.

The event will be USATF certified (Boston Qualifier), chip timed and fast, fast, fast.  We venture to say it is the fastest marathon and half marathon route in Alabama! Take a look at the results tab we held on this course back in 2020 to see for yourself how fast this course is!
