The Alabama Beta is a 2 day celebration of adventure, community and conservation -
a race between teams around a series of wild and varied challenges, across 24 locations, chosen to bring attention to parts of Alabama that must be seen to be believed, and the problems that threaten their future.
Grab a friend or four and be at the kickoff party on Friday night. Be ready for a day filled with experiences worth reliving, when we reconvene in the evening for live music, delicious local food, craft beers, and war stories. Then, retire to the campground for a sleep that can only be found in a sleeping bag under canvas after a full day outdoors, a great dinner, and a cold beer or two.
Not too many though, since we're up bright and breezy to get back out and race for our rivers! Then, meet up at the finish line to check clocks, count points, award prizes, and part as an ever stronger community. Until next time!
In just 2 events, dozens of teams from the growing "Beta Fam" community have pulled together to tackle hundreds of fun obstacles and tasks, over many challenging miles of the most beautiful country Alabama has to offer. Every memorable moment was documented live by our teams as they logged their bragging rights with photographic proof on instagram.

The Alabama Beta continues to work closely with Alabama's dedicated network of River Keepers, and has pledged a portion of the proceeds from this event for the protection of natural waterways, that are crucial to Alabama's unique and delicate natural splendor.
Like everyone else, COVID cramped our style for a couple years, but The Alabama Beta is back this July with an all new adventure to put you in touch with the best of parts of Alabama, and the best parts of you too!
Consider this your formal invitation. Plus four! Come and explore wild places and make new connections with people and creation.
Together we can turn the power of our collective love for nature into essential conservation initiatives, all while doing what we love most - having fun with a likeminded community in the outdoors.
The Alabama Beta has joined forces with the Coosa Riverkeeper to bring you a brand new Beta!
Grab 3-5 team mates and join us for the thrills...
