Pigeon Forge.com Midnight 8k Road Race
A fixture from the road racing heyday of the 1990's, when dozens of competitors
battled this lightning quick course at sub-5:00 pace, the Pigeon Forge
Midnight 8k combines the uniqueness of a midnight starting time with racing
down the middle of the divided boulevard in the brightly lit neon jungle
of Pigeon Forge.
The course is as flat and fast as they come, almost guaranteeing personal
best times for most competitors. An all-star cast of KTC volunteers promises
a great race, one that earns top runners points in the KTC Grand Prix
of Road Racing and counts toward the Team Competition Grand Prix, as well
as being the RRCA Southern Region Championship 8k Race.
Averages: High 88 Low 66.
Although the race starts at midnight, unless a rogue Canadian cold front
leaches through, racers will be combatting thick, stultefying humidity
and very warm temps even at that late hour. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
