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.
