Group Runs


These runs are not just for members. Everyone is welcome!


Group runs will now take place at Mellow Mushroom on the Cumberland Avenue strip on the University of Tennessee campus. Meet at 6pm for fitness, fun, and food!


Track workouts take place on Tuesday afternoons at 5:30 pm at the University of Tennessee's Tom Black Track on Volunteer Boulevard on the UTK campus. Several groups workout concurrently, some are quite fast with others a bit slower. Workouts are planned for runners of all speeds. Coach Keith Gemeinhart orchestrates the workout activities. Info on workouts can be accessed through this blog.


If you are visiting Knoxville, new to town, new to the club, or just looking to get more involved, this is the place to start! A festive and relaxed group get-together occurs every Wednesday afternoon at 5:30 pm at Runners Market, 4443 Kingston Pike Avenue, Western Plaza . During Daylight Savings Time, the run usually takes place on the Third Creek Greenway/Bike Trail. When darkness forces the courageous misfits off the trail, leaders generally head for the nearby Cherokee Boulevard/Sequoyah Hills neighborhood for a comfortably paced run of 5-6 miles. Afterward, cool beverages and good company are shared by participants.


Seasonal get-togethers occur during leadups to the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon and Half Marathon, and to other major KTC races.


At present no organized KTC Sunday run is taking place but as soon as another is organized, this listing will be updated.


Periodically club members will assemble in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for a running tour of the Cades Cove Loop Road, an 11-mile jaunt. At other times during the year, runners will meet in downtown Knoxville or elsewhere for festive runs, generally followed by equally festive post-run celebrations.
