Woodstock 5K


The Anniston Runners Club (ARC) and our members invite you to our premier annual event- The Historic Woodstock 5K and Kidstock 1K!  The 2023 race has been named the RRCA NATIONAL 5K Championship!  Woodstock is a fun, healthy, community event where more than 1200 runners and walkers come to shake their tail feathers! Go ahead and mark your calendar for August 5, 2023 for the oldest footrace in the southeast!

Woodstock is an exciting 5K with world class start/finish lines, our famous finish on Woodstock Avenue, and a totally groovy post-race celebration with food and fun!  IT has been over 10 YEARS since the course record has been broken by Male and Female runners. The individual with the best time for female or male that breaks the course record will receive an additional $500!  That is a potential of $1000 total for the overall winners!   For more information on awards visit the WOODSTOCK WEBPAGE

Don’t forget to check out our ever-so-popular Team Challenge! Team runners have a chance to win a cash prize for the team with the most participants and trophies for the fastest male, female, and coed team, as well as the team with the most spirit!

Please enjoy the hospitality Annistonians and Alabamians are famous for. We promise you won’t leave Woodstock disappointed- our runners, volunteers, and community guarantee it!
