Cahaba River Ramble--Postponed until late Summer 2020
After much heartfelt discussion, our Junior Board has decided to postpone the run. In light of current events, they feel it is important to undertake a restructuring that will allow the run to have a meaningful impact in addressing systemic racism and promoting equitable access to nature for all people. (Click here to read Cahaba River Society’s Statement of Solidarity Against Racism.)
Stay tuned for an announcement about the new date. We hope you will join us then!
About the Cahaba River Ramble Virtual Race
The Cahaba River Ramble 2020 VIRTUAL Trail Race is our first online challenge of 5k and a 10-mile runs that encourage socially-distant support of runners of all ages.
We encourage runners to challenge themselves (and go at their own pace) as they can choose either race to achieve. We encourage participants to explore their local outdoor areas, running paths or trails by the river. You can do it all in one day, run/walk/roll 1 mile or 1 kilometer a day for 5 or 10 days, or whatever combination suits you. It’s totally up to you!
Share photos and videos of your journey with the hashtag #RiverRamble2020 to be featured on this website, and we will all celebrate the journey together!
Who can participate?
From experienced trail runners to families just looking to get outdoors each day. There’s opportunities for everyone to participate in their own way. Participants receive a custom tee and a one-year complimentary membership with the Cahaba River Society

What is a Virtual Race?
Virtual races give participants the flexibility to complete the race at any time, at any pace, and in any location!
Track your time and compete with others in our Strava Club or complete the race on your own time. You can even register just to receive your special Cahaba River Society t-shirt. The choice is yours! We encourage all levels of participation.
In the time of social distancing, the VIRTUAL Cahaba River Ramble is a great way to stay active, engage with the community, and participate in some healthy competition while supporting the CLEAN Program and the work of the Cahaba River Society!
