*UPDATE*  Top of the morning to you you all!  We have spoken at length with local government and they are supporting our decision.  We will be moving forward with the race as scheduled on Sunday at 2pm.  We have closed online registration, but we will have day of registration open.  We would like to make you aware of our additional precautionary measures we are putting in place to help ensure the safety of everyone involved.  We will NOT have any aid stations during the race, please be prepared to bring your own water.  Food City has provided us with bottles of water for after the race.   Barley’s Taproom is closely monitoring the CDC, Tennessee Department of Heath and the Knox County Health Department and updating their procedures accordingly, we will have gloved servers serving your favorite slices instead of the typical buffet line in the past.  

As with any illness or health concern, we ask that you minimize risks for everyone and be mindful and please do not come if you are not feeling well and/exhibiting symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath.  If you don’t wish to participate in the race, we welcome you to pickup your Tshirt/Finishers Medal anytime during our Packet Pickup Saturday 2-6pm at Barley’s Taproom or Sunday from 12-2pm at Day of Packet Pickup at Barley’s.  Barley’s has graciously donated a voucher for 50% off small pizza and 2 free beers to those who wish to opt out of the race on Sunday.  Please keep in mind, this is a CHARITY race for Emily’s Power for a Cure.  We have your shirt and finisher’s medal for you even if you prefer to run a 5k at your home and skip the pizza/beer.  Virtual high fives all around!
Please refer to our Facebook Page for the most up to date information.


Join us for the 8th Anniversary of the best St. Patrick's Day 5K AND 1.7K in Knoxville!!! (Get it? 1.7K for March 17th?)  The race begins at Barley's Taproom & Pizzeria in the Old City on Sunday, March 15th, 2020 at 2:00pm. Your entry fee includes a cool T-shirt, pizza, and TWO FREE beers! THE FIRST 700 5K finishers to register will receive a St. Patrick's Day medal!  There will also be a bonus metal commemorative water bottle for those who finish both the 1.7 & 5K (the first 250 entries only)!!  

**We will NOT be doing a medal or T-shirt reorder this year.  This means the first 700 5K runners are guaranteed a medal and a T-shirt.  In addition, the first 250 DUAL slot registrants where runners will run both the 1.7K AND the 5K will receive BOTH the 5k medal AND a bonus metal commemorative water bottle for running both races.**

The best part is that you get to have all this fun while supporting a great cause!(Must be 21+ to drink) 

All proceeds go directly to Emily's Power For A Cure. EPFAC is a foundation whose purpose is to raise funds and awareness for neuroblastoma research.  It's also a group that we hold very dear to us.   

Packet pickup and late registration will be at Barley's Taproom on Saturday, March 14 from 2-6pm.  Then again on race day beginning at 12pm.

The 1.7K starts at 2:00PM with the 5k starting at 2:30PM.
