For Alabama Senior Olympics, we are using four to five Road Races that are being held around the state. After all road races have been completed, times will be compared with other athletes that have registered with the ASO and the top three in each division will be awarded an ASO medal. All ASO athletes completing a 5K or 10K road race will qualify for the 2023 National Senior Games. Athletes may also qualify for the 2023 Nationals by completing any road race during 2022 and reporting their race directly to Nationals by filing a "Limited Event" form.
We are attempting to have a table at the different race locations for athletes to pick up their packet/bag. Athletes do not need these to participate in the race. The bags will contain athlete's t-shirt and items donated by sponsors. If there is no Alabama Senior Olympics registration table at the event, the athletes bag will be mailed to them. Each athlete will receive one bag.
Begins June 1, 2022
Registration deadline is October 31, 2022.
Road Race athletes do not have to register with Alabama Senior Olympics before their race, just by the the Alabama Senior Olympics deadline.
