24/12 Hours of Iron Maiden - Jun 13, 2020

Back by popular demand, the 2018 version of Iron Maiden will offer both a 12-hour and 24-hour option. We are also moving the date in the hopes of less rain this year.

With great camping, cabins, and a museum, this is a fantastic venue for families. Lap distance: 9 miles Elevation per lap: 784 feet

Location: Tannehill Historical State Park, McCalla, Alabama
