2020 Road Race Schedule Remains Full Of Great Races

MADISON- The 2020 road race schedule continues to mesh with the current Covid-19 pandemic as the annual Cotton Row Run on Memorial Day was postponed until September, but the overall yearly schedule remains intact with races remaining on the schedule.

The Huntsville Track Club continues to process the schedule for the upcoming year with plenty of competitive races along with family-friendly events on the horizon.
