Due to construction on the Cumberland Avenue project, Neyland Drive is now one of the main detour routes for traffic and can no longer be closed to accommodate race events. The Pilot Fireball Moonlite Classic 5K Run/Walk and Firecracker Mile will be moving to a new venue and course for 2015. KTC Staff and the Race Director are working on race logistics now and information will be available as soon as it is confirmed. Registration is open and we look forward to a record crowd this year!
The Fireball Classic on July 3rd is a unique race that has something for almost
everyone. Starting at 9:00 pm, the late evening venue appeals to competitive
racers, casual runners, and those who just want to have a fun evening.
Post race activities
are always filled with lots to drink and eat. It's a great way to begin
this most patriotic holiday.

If past races are any indication, it will be a steamy evening, as typical late afternoon thundershowers are a good possibility.
