The 5K course is going to be in Townsend, TN, on the Townsend Historical Trail. The race will finish in front of the Tally Ho Inn. Check out the course and elevation map below. Start time is 6:30pm sharp!
This year we’re offering a 5K at the Great Smoky Mountains race! The pricing below reflects our timed race but you can also save $5 by registering for the fun run! You’ll get the same shirt and finisher medal, but you will not be timed for the awards.
There will be one aid station on the course near the half way point (mile 1.5). The aid station will have water, Gnarly, and bathrooms. Like the half marathon, the 5K race will be cupless!
5K and Black Bear Double runners will have until 6:00 pm to pick up their bib at the expo on Friday, September 8th. 5K fun-run registration is available until 5:00 pm, and timed 5K registration is allowed until 2:00 pm.
