Cancelled due to COVID-19

New Date: TBD

Hi everyone! After receiving word from the city that our race was confirmed, we then received further restrictions on our event. As running in extreme heat already has it's danger factor, several of the restrictions that were placed on the event, notably, the requirement that runners wear masks, we have determined are simply too dangerous for our participants. There were other restrictions that they had placed, due to COVID-19, that would have been impossible for us to accomplish and/or would have, in our opinion, been dangerous to the health of our participants. So, in light of this, this year's Some Like It Hot is cancelled.

Registered participants will be sent an email with instructions about next steps. We will schedule a date for 2021 just as soon as we can.

Stay safe everyone!

Here Are Your Options:

We will defer your registration to the 2021 date once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions and swag.

This option gives you a credit for the distance you signed up for, to be used on any of our races in the next two years. We had two events in Knoxville scheduled for this year, and two more on the drawing board for next year, and we hold races in other parts of Tennessee as well as six other states. This credit will be issued in the form of a code, which can be used as events are permitted for the future.

What's better than running by yourself? Running with a bunch of crazy fun people, that's what! 

The course is on a paved path that meanders around Victor Ashe Park. You will pass the start/finish/aid station area multiple times throughout the race because this is a multi loop course. The beauty of this setup is that nobody is ever alone for long (hooray for camaraderie!), our rockstar support staff can keep a close eye on everyone and spoil the living daylights out of you, and you can leave a drop bag to access your own personal goodies throughout the day. This is also a good place to reapply sunscreen, address any potential issues such as blisters, etc.

Our races are super low-key and non-competitive; we'd prefer to race you vs. you, not you vs. anyone else. This is much more of a family party atmosphere than a competition. We're here to help you reach your goals! That being said, our races are timed and results are posted online. All of our races are USATF sanctioned.

Race distances available include one mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1 miles (half marathon). There is a time limit of 4 hours for all distances. There will be an optional 1 hour early start, which then gives you up to 5 hours, because that's how math works. The aid station may not be fully operational during the early start, but this does give you some extra time.

Your registration fee includes entry into the race distance of your choosing, finisher medal for all distances, cooling towel, and our usual aid station setup including Gatorade, water, Gu, a ridiculous amount of snacks and post-race food. We'll also have coolers of icy water to dunk hats in or douse yourself in, and unlimited ice!

Swag for runners going 5K and further will be a custom Awesomesauce beach towel. Swag for the fun run is Awesomesauce sunglasses. Shirts are NOT included in your race fee, because we like to let you decide if you want a shirt and what type you'd like. Shirts, tank tops, hoodies, and other extra swag are available for pre-purchase during registration. If you'd prefer to have no swag at all, enter the code NOSWAG for $5 off.

As with any other race put on by any other company, registration fees and add-on fees are final and are not refundable or transferable for any reason. The races will go on rain, snow, or shine.
