Speaker John Kelly
We are excited to announce John Kelly as our Featured Speaker at our 2024 Event which will take place at the Host Hotel (Hilton Knoxville Airport )Ball Room on Friday Night after Packet Pickup!
John Kelly grew up adventuring through the dense mountains and forests around my family’s rural home in Morgan County, TN, constantly trying to keep up with his older brother and cousins. That grew into a love of exploration and a drive to continually challenge myself with goals that push my boundaries and that have failure as a probable outcome (without that possibility a goal is just a task).
Scheduled To Be Announced Later!

An urban ultra to start spring off with a bang! This event near Knoxville, TN (USA), has quickly become very popular, always filling before registration closes. With distances from 13.1 to 150 miles, there's something for everyone!
Runners get some great swag at check-in and are pampered by some really nice volunteers, are spoiled with amazing support at heated aid stations, enjoy camaraderie with plenty of other crazy ultra runners, and can score some really cool finisher's awards. This is a great race for first time and seasoned ultra runners alike. Walkers and push rims are welcome too. We’re here to have a good time!
The 50K/100K loops are the same distance (10.35 miles). The 50kers and will do this loop three times; the 100kers, six times. The 50/100 mile loops are slightly shorter (10 miles exactly), with the 50 milers five times, and the hundo runners ten times. The event features a very generous 32 hour cut-off for the 50K, 100K, and 100 miler. The nighttime 50 mile race starts at 8 PM Saturday with a 20 hour cut-off. The half and full marathon start at 8 AM Sunday and have an 8 hour cut-off. All races end at 4 PM Sunday.Race Details
