Weekend Pick: Strawberry Plains Half Marathon

 This Saturday, February 8th, is the 17 annual Strawberry Plains Half Marathon and 10K. Strawberry Plains is just 10 miles east of Knoxville, Tennessee. Both races start at 9:00am sharp!

You can sign up online now. There will also be day-of registration from 7:30-8:45am at Rush Strong Elementary School. The entry fee is $50 for the half and $35 for the 10K.  If you’re not interested in acquiring yet another t-shirt, deduct $5 off your fee.

The course starts and finishes at Rush Strong Elementary School. It winds through the Holston River Valley with views of Clinch and House Mountains.

For those needing a little help from their friends, the half can be run in teams of four or more. However, each member must pre-register at the same time.

There will be heavy post-race refreshments for all participants in the cafeteria. Awards for the half and 10K will be given to the top three winners in each category.
