The Cades Cove Loop Lope is the only organized footrace held inside Great Smoky Mountains National Park, to benefit Friends of the Smokies. All funds raised benefit park projects and programs such as historic preservation, wildlife conservation, native plant and grassland restoration, and much more.
Friends of the Smokies is incredibly grateful to all of our runners, volunteers, sponsors, and donors for their continued support! Safety is one of our top priorities for the Cades Cove Loop Lope, and that involves continually reviewing the CDC's Situation Summary regarding COVID-19.
At this time, Friends of the Smokies is working with the National Park Service to monitor CDC Recommendations regarding large gatherings. To receive updates on this year's race plans, visit our website here.
