About This Activity

New Balance Fun at the Farm 5k!

Presented by our friends at Oakes Farm

Same great event as last year: BBQ, Beer & a band, just a little later in the year, September instead of June! This year we will run around the farm on September 15th. Hopefully it will be cooler. We plan on starting with the Kid's Obstacle Course at 4:30p, then the 5k run starting at 5:00pm. Come ready to run and eat.

By popular demand we will be doing the "barefoot adult running" of the obstacle course afterwards, which may be the most entertaining part of the evening.

Come out to Oakes Farm in North Knox County to partake in good cross country run and BBQ dinner. Participants will eat free with their bibs. Parents, family and friends please make sure to purchase a meal ticket at checkout.

Date, Time, & Place: Saturday, September 15th, 2018 at 4:30 p.m with the Kids Obstacle Run and the 5k starting at 5:00 pm. The picnic will begin at 6:30 PM and last until 8:00 PM. The race start/finish at Oakes Farm in Corryton, TN.

KTC Safety Policy: KTC’s mission is to encourage lifelong physical well-being through running and walking. That is accomplished through a variety of events and programming. The Knoxville Track Club puts the safety of its participants, spectators, staff and volunteers first. Dangerous weather conditions pose a unique challenge to an event of any size, distance or location. Therefore, KTC has adopted the following Inclement Weather Policy:
Weather forecasts will be monitored prior to the event, with special attention placed on the possibility of heavy rain, thunder and lightning, high winds, extreme temperatures and humidity. If necessary, athletes will be made aware of these conditions on Knoxville Track Club’s website (www.ktc.org), as well as through other available means of communication such as e-mail, Twitter, Facebook and public address announcements.
The Executive Director and Race Director in consultation, when available, with law enforcement, fire/EMS, other medical officers and other officials, will monitor the weather and make a decision if any action will be taken to modify the race. Possible changes include: Altering the start time, altering the course, or in extreme situations cancellation of the event. Visible lightning occurring within 30 minutes of the scheduled start will cause the race to be postponed for a minimum of 30 minutes. Additional sightings will continue to delay the race in 30-minute increments up to a maximum of 3 delays.
Race personnel reserve the right to delay, cancel, or suspend the race or modify the course due to inclement weather. As stated on registration and race pages, there are no refunds or transfers. Participants must abandon the race if ordered to do so by the race personnel, medical staff, fire/paramedics or police.
