The course will be out and back, passing beautiful Mizell Bluff over the lake; They're very runnable trails that most folks in Knoxville aren't even aware of.

Turn right onto 321 (Lamar Alexander Parkway) for a little over 16 miles, then turn left onto Antioch Church Road (good landmark is a small white church on a hill opposite the turnoff:) Follow the winding Antioch Church Road a bit over five miles till it dead ends into the lake, or maybe stop just short of that.

COURSE ETIQUETTE: We reserve the right to disqualify anyone who exhibits unsportsmanlike conduct or is abusive to volunteers. Due to insurance regulations, no headsets, earphones, bicycles, baby strollers, roller blades or pets on the course.
SAFETY: Aid and water stations will be provided, but in an effort to be greener, we require all runners to carry their own water, i.e., no cups at aid stations. If you don't own a handheld, consider purchasing one. Otherwise a basic water bottle will be provided. We also strongly recommend that anyone sensitive to insect stings or bites carry their own medication. Finally, we urge that everyone do some pre-race training offroad, as there is no substitute for experience. We want you to have a good time.
