Description

Ready to run in the biggest Fleet Feet event ever? Welcome to The 3rd Annual Big Run! 

On June 5 Fleet Feet locations nationwide, in partnership with Brooks and Nuun, will hold 5K race events.  Here in Knoxville we have a certified, timed 5K to celebrate Global Running Day.  We want everyone to be able to participate, so we are having 6:30 am, 9:00 am and 6:30 pm heats for this race!   All results from these races will funnel up into a national leader-board to determine and reward the overall fastest runners and age groupers in the country with some pretty cool cash prizes. And since this is Fleet Feet, and we celebrate and welcome runners of all abilities and levels, we will also recognize runners with some truly unique awards, including:

NATIONAL AWARDS FOR CERTIFIED 5KS ARE TBD, BUT LAST YEAR THE AWARDS WERE:

Fastest male and female: The fastest male and female in the land will each receive $500.

Fastest age grouper, male and female: The fastest male and female in each age group will each receive $100: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

In the middle of it all: The male and female who finish in the exact middle of all finishers in the country in their gender receive $500!

Common ground: We’ll enter each person who finishes at the most common time across the country into a drawing for $500!

Social butterflies: Any participants who post a photo from The Big Run and includes #TheBigRun @FleetFeet, @BrooksRunning, is eligible to win one of three pairs of exclusive, The Big Run custom Goodr sunglasses, provided by Brooks!

LOCAL AWARDS FOR The BIG RUN KNOXVILLE 5K:

Overall: The fastest male and female each will receive a $40 Fleet Feet Knoxville gift certificate.

Age group: The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd male and female in each age group will receive a $20, $15, & $10 Fleet Feet Knoxville gift certificate, respectively: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

We want to see the whole community participate because, seriously, running together rocks. Let us recap the ways: 

  • You get to join Fleet Feet communities across the country in doing something unique—a nationally-coordinated 5K race taking place in different locations all on the same day.
  • It's on a Wednesday—who couldn't use a mid-week pump-up?
  • There are 3 different times you can participate, so no excuses!
  • Finisher medals. Not just any medal. A very cool, make-your-friends-jealous medal.
  • We know some people and some pretty cool brands like Brooks). Let's just say, we're planning some fun raffle giveaways and category prizes.
  • Proceeds benefit the Appalachian Mountain Bike Club to support their trail building and maintenance project at Concord Park. More trails = more beautiful places to run and bike in Knoxville!

The Big Run coincides with Global Running Day and is open to runners of all levels and abilities.
