Cotton Row Run Postponed Until Labor Day

HUNTSVILLE- The traditional Memorial Day running of the Cotton Row Run has been postponed and is now rescheduled for Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 7. Race directors made the announcement after careful consideration for the health and safety of the runners, race workers and volunteers and spectators during the current Covid-19 pandemic.

“The Huntsville Track Club made the decision to move the 41st Cotton Row Run to a more suitable date,” said race directors in an announcement released April 29. “Working closely with the City of Huntsville and race sponsors, we have set a race date for Labor Day.”

The annual race held in downtown Huntsville has grown into one of the most respected 10K distance races in the Southeast and is one of the biggest events in all of North Alabama. Racers of all ages take to the streets of downtown Huntsville for a spectacular jaunt in each of the 10K, 5K and one-mile races.

Race directors also related in its announcement, “Even though we must postpone our Memorial Day tradition of honoring our military who have lost their lives in service to our country, we are committed to honoring their sacrifice and dedicating our race to them on Labor Day. We look forward to seeing you there.”

Bill Penney Toyota will return as presenting sponsor with additional sponsors also on board including Fleet Feet Huntsville, TOC and the City of Huntsville.

Registration for the Labor Day race is open on-line at the Cotton Row Run website.
