Foothills Half Marathon

About This Activity

Second year half marathon race on the Alcoa-Maryville Greenway! It's East Tennessee, so it's not flat, but considering it's the greenway and mostly flood easement, it's just about as flat as possible for this region.

All pre-registered participants will recieve a commemorative technical race shirt and finisher's medal upon completion of the event. Awards will be given to top three male and female finishers, masters, grandmasters, and age groups. Age groups will be three deep in five year age groups.

Fluid stations (Gatorade, water, & Power Gels) will be located at key points (~ every 2 miles) along the course. Participants requiring fluids more than every two miles should plan to carry their own. A strict course limit of 4 hours (about 18 minutes per mile) will be enforced for finishing.

New for 2014--Post race meal provided by Earth Fare.

Headphones are allowed but strongly discouraged as the course is narrow and will be open to other public pedestrian traffic (including bicycles). Strollers are permitted but must line up at the start behind all other participants and may not impede the progress of other participants. Dogs are strongly discouraged (must be on leash at all times), must line up at the back of the start and owners must have complete control of them at all times, cannot impede the progress of other participants, must pick up all waste and be responsible for their hydration needs. Participants with strollers or dogs will not be eligible for awards.
