Bigfoot Biobash is a family friendly trail run and Conservation Festival on the highest mountain in Alabama: Cheaha State Park. Enjoy the day's events (Conservation Festival, Live Music, Food and more!) for all ages, and support your park! .   

The course is mainly comprised of trails, but there are also segments of the race on gravel and asphalt. The START AND FINISH LINE ARE IN THE SAME AREA. The 5K begins near Bunker Tower and continues north on Bunker Loop and onto the Cheaha Express (yellow blaze). The course then completes the Upper Spring Loop (green blaze), and connects back to Cheaha Express. Participants will then follow Bunker Loop Road to to Tower Road where the course takes runners to the one-of-a-kind Bigfoot Trail. This trail was built with help from the JSU Geography Club, and highlights the seven principles of Leave No Trace! The Bigfoot Trail finishes near the Observation Tower at the highest point in Alabama. Who doesn't want to say they outran Bigfoot while racing to the highest point in Alabama?
