Registration & Packet/Bib Pickup

ONLINE REGISTRATION ONLY - RACE-DAY REGISTRATION on Site at Increased Price - NO REFUNDS

Race participants may pick up their race packets prior to the race at Academy Sports + Outdoors, 145 Moss Grove Blvd, Knoxville, TN 37922 on 7-8 September between 12:00 PM and 20:00 PM.

Race packets may be picked up on race day at the registration table (located at the participant parking lot at Melton Hill Park) beginning at 6:00 AM. The race packet will contain your runner’s bibs with its embedded chip so if you pick up the packet early, you will not need to go to the registration table on race day – you can go from the parking area straight to the starting line.

Individual Registration and Fees

Individual: $50.00 until 16 Aug, $55.00 after 16 Aug, $65.00 after 6 Sept, Kids Run $20.00

Online registration closes 7 September 2022 at 11:59 PM or when total registrants is 3150, whichever is first.

Since each runner’s start time and finishing time will be recorded by means of the disposable chip, we will have staggered starting times – when you register, you’ll be asked to register for one of the following start times:
Individual Runners – Start times at 8:00am, then at 8:30am, 9:00am, 9:30 and 10:00AM. Each starting time group will contain no more than 200 runners – if you try to register in one time slot but it is filled, you will be required to select a wave time that has available slots. If you arrive for your registered start time a little late, we’ll be starting runners from that group for 10 minutes after their requested wave start time. You should arrive at the park one hour before your registered starting time.

PARTICIPANTS MUST REGISTER ONLINE with the exception of on-site Race Day registration at an increased cost.

Team Registration and Fees

Each Team Member: $50.00 until 16 Aug, $55.00 after 16 Aug, $65.00 after 6 Sept,  Kids Run $20.00

Each starting time group will contain no more than 200 runners – if you try to register in one time slot but it is filled, you will be required to select a wave time that has available slots. If you arrive for your registered start time a little late, you'll be placed in the next wave start time. You should arrive at the park one hour before your registered starting time. To ensure that you work as a team to complete the race, the team’s score will be recorded as the time of the 4th finisher on the team. Teams have a minimum of 4 members and a maximum of 10. If you are the team leader and register a team before all the members of your team have registered, that’s OK, however if your team does not have 4 registered members by September 7th, 2022, your team, while still running, will not be eligible to compete for team awards. There will be no refunds of unfilled teams.
