Hopewell Community Center • 7290 County Road 16 Centre, AL 35960
The McCord’s 5k Run
takes place in a rural setting in Northeast Alabama near the Alabama-Georgia state line at the historic Hopewell Community Center at McCord’s Crossroads, a beautiful 100 year-old white lap boarded former church building. The start/finish line is situated on the Hopewell property, 7290 County Road 16, Centre, AL. Race participants depart the Hopewell grounds, continue on County Road 16 where drink stations are provided at intervals as the race turns onto County Road 157 to a turnaround and where other drink stations are available. Runners will race on the flat terrain of an asphalt roadway in this beautiful rural American countryside, past white cotton fields awaiting harvest and fenced pastureland where horses and cattle are grazing. Participants return on County Road 16 to the start/finish line where they are greeted with race-day refreshments and an awards ceremony to follow.
