Come enjoy the beauty of Tennessee's most popular state park. Cooler temps, shaded run course, and the highest free-falling waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains are just a few of the attractions of the Fall Creek Falls 50K & Half Marathon Trail Runs. Post-race meal and music for all participants. Centrally located between Nashville, Chattanooga, and Knoxville. Race start time is 8:00 AM Central Time for 50K & 9 AM Central for Half Marathon.
Weather - The rain has been removed from the daytime forecast thank goodness. We are planning to have a great day of awesome weather to run in Saturday. There is still a chance of rain throughout the night until 5:30am, so there could be some muddy and wet areas on the trails. Temps are expected to be 50 degrees at 8am start for the 50k and 52 degrees at 9am for the Half Marathon, rising to 62 for the high. Please dress appropriately. FYI - race shirts are long sleeve. We will update you via the Bald Eagle Events Facebook Page as we get closer to Friday. We understand many are travelling distances to participate, so we wlll do our best to inform any changes quickly.
We've adjusted the route to get the distance in due to the Suspension Bridge still being out on the Upper Loop.
We have a block of rooms available at the Lodge at Fall Creek Falls for those who are registered for the events. Click the Lodge menu at the top of this page for more info on getting your room.

Time Cut offs – We do feel we need to have some limit to ensure safety and not over-burden Park officials and volunteers. We are going to “loosely” hold 50K runners to a 20 minute-per-mile limit – This means 4 hours at first passing of aid station #3 at 12.25 miles & 8 hours at same point next loop. If you have not reached aid station #3 by these times, you will be asked to head back or receive a ride back to finish area.
Packet pick up / late registration is Friday, April 21 from 4:30 to 6 PM CST & Saturday, April 22 from 6:30 to 7:45 AM for the 50k and continue to 8:45am for the Half Marathon. The location will be at the pavilion across from the Nature Center located near the North entrance of the park next to the Playground.
Aid Stations - Please review map for locations of 3 aid stations on loop. Between 1ST & 2ND (Half and 50k) and between 4th and 5th AID STATIONS (50K) - PLEASE CARRY FLUIDS AT LEAST as this will be a longer stretch - Stations will have water, gatorade, gel and some other snacks. No hot food on course - hot food back at finish.
