Thirty-Fifth Annual Azalea Trail Run

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Thirty-Fifth Annual Azalea Trail Run. The Historic streets of Old Mobile, Alabama come alive in late March of every year, where in early spring the city is in full bloom. The pink hues of azaleas mingled with the white blossoms of dogwood and bridle wreath are everywhere in sight, and the sweet fragrance of purple wisteria drifts gently in the air. Thousands of runners race down the oak-shaded streets lined by magnificent old Antebellum homes that evoke images of a time long past.
Like. The Azalea Trail run is considered one of the United States' premier road races.
athletes from around the world and at all levels turn out for the event. The 10-kilometer race is known for its fast, flat course along Mobile’s oak shaded streets and has seen blistering records set by runners since its inception.
