Welcome from the Race Director!

This bird is...37 years come celebrate with us! The Anniston Runners Club (ARC) and our members, invite you to our premier annual event - the 37th Annual Historic Woodstock 5K and Kidstock 1 Mile. Woodstock is a fun, healthy, community event where 1500+ runners and walkers came last year to shake their tail feathers for others. This year we are proud to, yet again, host the Road Runners Club of America’s State 5K Championship! You will find that Woodstock is a challenging 5K equipped with world class start/finish lines. You will experience our famous up the hill finish on Woodstock Avenue and then a great after-race celebration with food, music, fellowship and vendors. So, come on and get your run (or walk) on with us, because we promise that you will not leave Woodstock disappointed - our runners, our volunteers and our community guarantee it.  Also, be sure to check out our ever so popular Team Challenge!  You receive a discount and a chance to win a cash prize, so start recruiting members because the ‘Team with the Most Participants’ will win a $500 CASH PRIZE!  In 2016, the proceeds from the Woodstock 5K allowed the ARC to donate over $10,000 to local programs, such as the East Central Alabama United Cerebral Palsy Center, Special Olympics and others! Our goal is to keep increasing that amount!

Mark your calendars now for Saturday, August 5, 2017, and help us celebrate our 37th anniversary – do it for charity, do it for fun, do it for your community, and do it for others, but most importantly DO IT FOR YOU!

See you on Race Day!

Swag Bag 

We've moved away from the Virtual Race Bag and will be offering a physical swag bag at Packet Pickup. You'll grab your tech shirt, bib and bTag timer, and other goodies offered by our sponsors and affiliates. 

Please plan to register early to ensure you receive a shirt. Participants waiting until after July 15th to register run the risk of not getting the desired shirt size, or maybe not getting a shirt at all as we are limiting our order to 1,500.

We will do our best to accommodate all runners, but if we run out of shirts, we will not be reordering more, nor will we offer a discounted race entry fee since proceeds from our race go to non-profits.

If you pre-register, and are unable to attend the event, please arrange for pickup as we will not be mailing shirts/race packets.

Food and Post-Race Party!
Woodstock is known for a fantastic post-race party! Great music! Great Food! Great Vendors! There will be two aid stations on the course, and water and Gatorade at the start/finish and at the Post-Race Party.
