USATF certified (Half: TN15005MS)(10k: TN15006MS). A scenic and rolling course through the beautiful countryside of Jefferson County in East Tennessee. It meanders through the Holston River Valley with views of Clinch and House Mountain. Unlike the Half Marathon, the 10K course is a mostly flat, out and back course with only a few climbs. The course is open to traffic and therefore headphones are strongly discouraged (See Race Etiquette Section below).
The Half Marathon is not a walker friendly course. Course will close after 3 hours and 30 minutes. No exceptions.
No runners under the age of 15 allowed in the half marathon.
