It's coming! An urban ultra in Alcoa, Tennessee (near Knoxville) to start the new year off with a bang. This event first started in 2013 and has quickly become very popular, always filling before the registration closing date. With distances from about 10 to 100 miles, there's something for everyone. The 50K, 100K, and hundo have a generous 30 hour time limit, the 50 miler has 18 hours. There's even the super crazy double barrel race for those who want to do both the 50K and the 50 miler! Runners score some great swag, enjoy the optional tasty pre-race pasta dinner, get pampered by some really nice volunteers, lots of heated aid station support, warming stations, camaraderie with plenty of other crazy ultra runners, and some really cool finishers awards. This is a great race for first time and seasoned ultra runners alike. Walkers are welcome too. We’re here to have a good time!
