Event Information:

The Inaugural event was held March 20, 2005. There are many great spots to watch friends and family members as they travel along the marathon course. All events start on the Clinch Avenue Bridge, so you will be able to see your friend start. Both the marathon and half-marathon courses will come through one block away (at the corner of World's Fair Park Drive and Clinch Ave) at mile 12.5. Marathoners will then come back through the start line at mile 25.5. The start line is just half of a mile from Neyland Stadium, so you could see your loved one start and finish easily. Located at the 4400 block of Kingston Pike, Western Plaza has long been a hot spot for full and half-marathon spectators. This location is a great place to see triumphant faces of participants who have just conquered "The Hill" at Noelton Drive. With live bands, a water stop sponsored by Runners Market, and rowdy fans, this location is one of the favorites among runners and spectators alike. The course hits some of Knoxville' s nicer running routes and city landmarks. The finish in Neyland Stadium is impressive. The spectators are concentrated in only a few locations and you 'll find yourself running on your own quite a bit.
