Parkside Realty Townsend 15k

USATF CERTIFICATION: TN 07013 MS

This race is a must run for those who enjoy some distance. Set in Townsend, Tennessee, the aptly named "Peaceful Side of the Smokies," there isn't a more scenic race venue on the KTC calendar. September is a particularly glorious time to visit -- and run -- Townsend and to revel in the splendid harvest decorations for which the area has become famous. The course offers some challenges, but most who run it once return again and again.

Weather

Cool and comfortable at race's start, warm and sunny (but pleasant) by race's end. However, be prepared in case Mother Nature brings rain.
