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.
