Looking for a fun 5K? Why not try the Leftover Run sponsored by the Knoxville Track Club that takes place Sunday, December 9th? This is a completely SOCIAL event and is NOT timed. It is perfect for runners and WALKERS alike.
There is no early registration and no official bibs. Show up a Tyson Park starting at 1PM on the 9th to sign up. Race starts at 2PM. The cost is ONLY $5. Yes, $5. ALL the money goes to the Empty Stocking Fund.
There are no shirts for this race, but trust me you will leave with a shirt, or two, or three. HOW? All of the leftover t-shirts and awards from 2012 are up for grabs. Any leftovers after the race are donated to the Boys and Girls Club of the TN Valley.
The course is out and back on the greenway and is roughly a 5K. Again – this is a social, non-timed run for fun and for charity. Since this is a fun, social run to benefit charity there will be no post race food – but feel free to bring your own.
I have walked this race for the past couple of years (once while it was snowing) and it is such fun. Sadly I will have to miss out this year due to my leg and previous commitments.
In Knoxville? Consider helping out a charity and having fun at the same time!
