Be ready for some fun on the run! You will begin your run by heading out of transition and turning onto Neyland Drive. You will take Neyland Drive onto the paved Knoxville Greenway Trails. This will be a nice flat and fast stretch with a little bit of shade. You will pass the Knoxville Rugby fields and then head into Tyson’s park. If you are doing the Olympic you will hit the park and then head back home for this flat and fast out and back.
The Half Rev will continue on the Greenway and then around mile 3.9 you will head up your first big climb for the run into Sequoya Hills neighborhood. Your next hill will be a short but steep one around mile 4.6. You will run on Cherokee Blvd here you will have a nice descent as you cruise into mile 6. You will turn around at the bottom of Cherokee Blvd and then head on back. Be ready for your last hill around mile 7.6. You will follow the same path back to Neyland Drive and then head to the finish line where all your friends and family will be waiting to cheer you into your big finish!
