So unfortunately, In typical 2020-21 fashion, the live race was cancelled. So i participated in the virtual event. Even though I didn't get the full race experience I'm so glad I signed up! The jacket we received is absolutely amazing & my new favorite. And the hot chocolate & chocolate squares were delicious as usual. I can't wait to run this race in person next year (fingers crossed) My packet showed up on time and neatly packaged & it was easy to navigate how to log my results.

It’s a fantastic race brought on by fantastic people. A must run! In a typical East Tennessee fashion the course has some rolling hills but nothing too difficult and there are long stretches of flat land as well. Aid stations were wonderfully handled and the swag was awesome. The post race breakfast bar was delicious. A really well organized event overall

This was one of the hottest races I’ve ever run, however the crowd support and aid stations were absolutely amazing. There were groups of people handing out ice pops and water pretty much the entire way. It was a really well organized race and the course was easy to follow. The expo and after party were fun, the tents of ice cold beer on the beach were a major plus after losing 10 lbs in sweat. I’d highly recommend this to anyone who can handle the heat!

This is the most looked forward to race in knoxville. The race directors do an amazing job of putting on a seamless race every year. from the expo to race day to post race treats everything is amazingly coordinated. I highly recommend this race to everyone, even with the infamous Noelton elevation gain.
