COURSE DESCRIPTION: The very challenging 5k course will start on Baker Creek, left onto Sycamore Loop, left onto Best Medicine, bomb down Devil’s Racetrack either way, and finish on Baker Creek. The easier (yes, I said easier) 10k course will also start on Baker Creek, left onto part of Sycamore Loop, left onto Red Bud Crest, across the Red Bud Road bridge and back for a short out'n'back, left onto Floyd Fox, left onto Sycamore Loop, left onto Best Medicine, right onto Pappy’s Way, and finish on Baker Creek. We emphisize that the 5k course is highly challenging and should not be undertaken lightly.

Race staging area will be at the main Baker Creek parking area on Lancaster Drive, Knoxville TN 37920.

Top point earners at the end of the series (five each male / female and < 40 / 40+) will receive TTT Series awards.

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.

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 special colorful and durable handheld bottleholders will be available for purchase for $5.00. 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.
