The New Year's Day 5k is an exciting and wonderful way to start the new
year. This race is unique in several ways that separate it from other
races in town. Of course the fact that it comes on New Year's Day makes
it unique, but the main difference is the award ceremony which awards
the top 100 males and top 100 females crossing the finish line. Awards
are also given to the oldest and youngest runners and top male and female
Calhoun's is a great community partner for the Knoxville Track Club and it is a great opportunity to be able to host events at their locations.

This race will kick off the 2016 KTC Grand Prix Series and the exciting
Team Competition grand prix as well. Bring your families and friends for
a great way to start the new year and lots of fun and good food.

New Year's Day can be quite eccentric, as evidenced by the snowfall a
