The Knoxville Track Club encourages life-long physical well-being through
running and walking.
Health living, healthy community - one step at a time.
With more than 2100 members, the KTC is one of the largest running clubs
of its kind in the country. KTC is a member of the USATF, AAU, Road Runners
Club of America, Knoxville Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Knox Area
Greenways Coalition. We are a longtime participant in the Tennessee Adopt-a-Highway
and Adopt-a-Creek programs.
Playing an active role in Knoxville and surrounding counties, we raise
monies at our own races, as well as assist others for a variety of worthy
causes, including the Knox Greenways Coalition, FISH Pantry, the Arthritis
Foundation, Tennessee School for the Deaf, local youth organizations and
others. We sponsor a year round Youth Athletics program for East Tennessee
area kids and train exceptional athletes for regional and national competition.
We support high school, middle school and elementary school track and
field and cross country programs, and direct the Volunteer Track Classic
Series. We give financial support to the University of Tennessee Women's
and Men's Track Teams.
Our KTC Officials Association assists in and trains officials for area
track and field meets.
