5K race and 1 mile fun run/walk starting at the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center, featuring the best swag in the history of Bigfoot 5Ks!! Race, run, walk, or crawl 5K (or 1 mile!) and take home:

  • All wood medal (yes, genuine Bigfoot-kissed wood!)
  • Bigfoot Tee (relaxed fit, crazy comfy!)
  • Bigfoot Gaiter (ditch those boring face masks!)
  • Bigfoot Socks (guaranteed appropriate for any occasion!)
  • Bigfoot Bracelet (as if you needed any more style!)
  • ...all provided in a Bigfoot Backpack (you'll want to cram even more Bigfoot swag in there!)
  • and...who knows what else we'll come up with?

The 5K starts at 9:00am, and the 1 mile fun run starts at 9:10am, with full support along the way and a guaranteed good time. You might even experience a 'Squatch (or Sassy Squatch!) sighting along the course! After the race, stick around for the Smoky Mountain Bigfoot Festival - We'll have live music, vendors, food trucks, Bigfoot competitions (I don't even know what that means yet!), Bigfoot oral history, and much much more! 

Due to insurance regulations we can't have pets in either race, and strollers or wagons are only allowed on the 1 mile fun run. 

Now, per your request, we're adding a virtual option! Run your own Bigfoot 5K in your own neighborhood, send in your own results, and we'll mail you some of the swag (wood medal & the Bigfoot tee). Hey, find yourself an all downhill 5K course and set yourself a massive PR! You're still welcome to join us at the Smoky Mountain Bigfoot Festival of course. 

We've had to close registration a day early because all the swag is gone and maybe more importantly, the parking lot is going to be packed!
