Tip Of The Day

Set a Date

No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.

Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.

The Pistol Ultra

An urban ultra to start spring off with a bang! This event near Knoxville, TN, has quickly become very popular, always filling before registration closes. With distances from 13.1 to 150 miles, there's something for everyone! The course is a mostly flat (for East Tennessee!), paved, generally eight foot wide greenway that is lit at night time. For those who prefer a softer surface, there is grass alongside some of the trail. It meanders along the Pistol Creek (hence the name for the event), through Alcoa, by several small bodies of water, and over to Maryville's Bicentennial Greenbelt Park. It is a linear route just over 5 miles long with a lollipop at the end of the out-and-back. All of the races start at the beautiful new Alcoa High School (1205 Lodge Street, Alcoa, TN). All distances will run south about 4.5 miles and return to the start, then continue north to their specified turnaround and return back to the start. The 50K/100K loops will be the same distance (10.35 miles). The 50kers will do this loop three times; the 100kers, six times. The 50/100 mile loops will be slightly shorter (10 miles exactly), with the 10 milers doing it once, the 50 milers five times, and the hundo runners ten times. The event features a very generous 32 hour cut-off for the 50K, 100K, and hundo. The nighttime 50 mile race starts at 8 PM Saturday with a 20 hour cut-off. The half marathon starts at 7:55 AM Sunday (March 22); the full marathon starts at 8 AM Sunday (course details coming soon for these two distances!). All races end at 4 PM Sunday.
