DATE TIME PLACE: Sunday, April 7, 2018. 10:00 am. Staging area will be on Renovare Blvd off the Oak Ridge Turnpike at the west end of Oak Ridge,TN. Kids Trail Mile starts 9:30 am.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Both the rollicking fifteen-mile course and equally fun six mile course will traverse a combination of singletrack trail and jeep road. Hills will be available whether you want them or not.
DIRECTIONS — From Knoxville: Take Pellissippi Parkway west to Oak Ridge. Go through town on Illinois Avenue and turn left onto the Oak Ridge turnpike (Hwy 95). Go about 6.1 miles to Renovare Blvd and turn right.
REGISTRATION AND FEES (NO REFUNDS AND NO BIB TRANSFERS): Fee: $15.00 for pre-registration and online registration. $10.00 for students 14 and younger. KTC volunteer coupons accepted. Online registration available at www.ktc.org. NOTE: Day of Race registration $20.00. Kids $5.00 ($10 with shirt.)
T-SHIRTS: Special limited edition T-shirts will be printed for the series. This is the same shirt as at all other Treadin’ Trodden Trails races; one shirt per runner PER SEASON please. Taking multiple shirts minimizes monies we are able to donate to trail friendly causes.
SPECIAL SERIES AWARDS: Points will be awarded for overall finish (and volunteerism) at each of the TTT Series races. Top point earners at the end of the series (five each male / female and < 40 / 40+) will receive TTT Series awards. Overall top male and female and top male and female masters qualify for free entry to the entire 2020 Treadin' Trodden Trails racing season. In order to qualify for a series award, an individual must be a current KTC member and volunteer at a minimum of three Treadin’ Trodden Trails events. Point totals accrue in a maximum of eight series events.
RESULTS: Results will be available on the Knoxville Track Club website: www.ktc.org
COURSE ETIQUETTE: We reserve the right to disqualify anyone who exhibits unsportsmanlike conduct or is abusive to volunteers. Due to insurance regulations, no headsets, earphones, bicycles, baby strollers, roller blades or pets on the course.
SAFETY: Aid and water stations will be provided, but in an effort to be greener, we require all runners to carry their own water, i.e., no cups at the aid stations. If you don't own a handheld, consider purchasing one; they're quite useful out on the trail. Otherwise a basic water bottle will be provided and handheld bottleholders will be available for purchase inexpensively. We also strongly recommend that anyone sensitive to insect stings or bites carry their own medication. Finally, we urge that everyone do some pre-race training offroad, as there is no substitute for experience. We want you to have a good time.
