June 24, 2017 6:30 am-10:00 am

RunTheTweetsie is early to "beat the heat". This time was well received last year, so the 6:30 am start will remain the same this year.

This early morning Half Marathon and 10K will be run on Johnson City, Tennessee’s premiere Rails to Trails project- The Tweetsie Trail.  All finishers of either event will receive a great t-shirt and medal.

The Half Marathon will start at 6:30 am at the Tweetsie Trail trailhead on Legion Street and the runners will run two 6.55 mile loops with the turnaround slightly past Happy Valley Road. There is a strict registration limit, as well as a 3.5 hour time limit, for the half marathon.  

The 10K will leave 30 minutes later (7:00 am). The 10K runners will complete one loop of the course, which will be slightly over a 10K.

The Tweetsie Trail will be an open course, so be courteous to other users of the trail.  Please be aware of bikes, animals and non-race runners and walkers.  Earbuds and strollers are allowed during the race, but are discouraged due to the open course.  

All runners must be finished by 10:00AM. 

***All RunTheTweetsie participants and volunteers must park across the street in parking lot adjacent to Cardinal Park designated for the Tweetsie Trail or in the public parking lot located across from the Legion Street pool, at the corner of State of Franklin and Legion Street. All parking areas are within 0.1-0.2 miles of the starting line.  It is imperative that the Alabama Street parking area be left open for cyclists, runners, and walkers who also want to enjoy the trail.****
