Will anyone finish this year? RATS is established as probably the toughest race in Alabama with its 5% finisher rate. This is not a race for beginners. The challenge that awaits is physical, mental, and navigational. Since June 21st is the Summer Solstice we will celebrate with a night race on the shortest Saturday night of the year (June 24th). It will be hot, rugged, dark and challenging. The course will consist of four 9ish mile loops around Ruffner Mountain in Birmingham, AL. It may be 36 miles, it could be as much as 40 miles.
