Completed in 1958, Alabama State Route 210, aka Ross Clark Circle, was the first “ring road” in the United States, and it just happens to be the perfect distance to host a half marathon.
Run The Circle proceeds benefit the Dothan Police Foundation, an independent, not-for-profit organization established to provide supplemental resources for the facilitation of education and training for law enforcement and first responders to enhance regional public safety, build stronger relationships between the community and the Police, facilitate youth outreach programs, and provide pro-life, rehabilitation-adoption animal services.
The vision of the Foundation is to make Dothan and the surrounding Wiregrass area the most friendly, safe, and inviting place for all its residents and visitors to live, work, and play.
