In 2019, after 20 years of the race existence, the Gurley Lions Club took up the mantle of organizing the GURLEY LIONS CHALLENGE 5K Run. The Gurley Lions Club is devoted to serving the town of Gurley, and the members show that devotion by providing college scholarships to worthy students, providing vision care for those who can’t afford it, assisting families who need help buying prescription drugs, making donations to the Gurley Library, providing much-needed classroom supplies at local schools, participating in the “Any Soldier” program (in partnership with the MCHS Army JROTC program), making an annual donation to the Gurley Police Department, and supporting many other projects at both the local and national level. The proceeds from the 5K race will go toward these programs and more, ensuring a brighter future for the people of Gurley.
We need the support of the community to make this event a success. Your support is crucial to that effort. Our Sponsors who support the race with at least $200 have their names and logo printed on the tee shirts that all participants will receive. The proceeds of the race support the local programs of the Gurley Lions Club charities. For more information visit our GURLEY LIONS CHALLENGE 5K Run

Lioness Club Christmas Parade
Starting December 2018 it was decided to move the Gurley Christmas Parade to the First Saturday in December because the ACT is given on the 2nd Saturday in December and several students couldn't be in it. Also Huntsville used to hold theirs on the 1st Saturday and we did not want to interfere with that, but they have moved theirs to an evening during the week.
Starting at 10 am behind Gurley Middle School.

Trail Of Tears Commemorative Motorcycle Ride since 1994
Always the third Saturday in September. The Trail of Tears goes through Gurley on HWY 72.
