Description

The EXPO 10K/5K is more than a race: It's Knoxville's oldest and most beloved community running event. 2024 will mark the 47th running of this annual event. The expo is truly a tradition. It is the only local race that celebrates the family by having mother/son, mother/daughter, father/son, father/daughter, wife/husband, and three generations categories. 

Unable to attend race day or would be more comfortable running on your own?  We are still offering the virtual option.  You may sign up to support the club and this event and run 5k or 10k anywhere you would like.  

Date, Time, & Place: Saturday May 25th, 2024. This year we will kick off with a kids mile run at 7:00am, while the 5k and 10k begin at 7:30am.  Please note: start times are subject to change. *Please confirm when race week communication is sent out.*

Course Description and Highlights: Course starts in front of Crafty Bastard on Central Avenue, turns right on Magnolia, turns left on Gay Street, turns left on Jackson, then right onto Central again. Then follow Central down to Neyland Drive to the turnaround and follow the same route back for an-out and-back course. Both courses follow same route, the 10k simply goes further out Neyland. Layouts available for review here: 10k, 5k
