These runs are not just for members. Everyone is welcome!
Group runs will take place at Mellow Mushroom on the Cumberland Avenue strip on the University of Tennessee campus. Meet at 6pm for fitness, fun, and food!
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/Half Marathon, and the Farragut 13.1.
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.
