About This Activity

Come out and run in the beautiful Clarks Creek Recreation Area in Jonesborough, TN.  This is an exclusive limited entry race.  Only 50 total runners are allowed in both the 5 and 10 mile races.  The race course will be the 2.5 mile forest service road that run alongside Clarks Creek in the Cherokee National Forest.  The 5 Mile Race will be an out and back run on the road. It is so beautiful that the 10 mile runners get to do this twice.  There will be an Aid Station at the turnaround point (miles 2.5 and 7.5) for all runners.

Both the 5 and 10 mile races will be chip timed.  The race will start and finish in the parking area at the beginning of the Clarks Creek Recreation Area.  Race will begin at 8 am for both races.  There will be a strict cutoff time of 3 hours for both races.  Parking will be limited on-site, but a shuttle service will be available if necessary.  Port-a-potties will be available to runners as well.  Packet pick-up and Race Day Registration (if available) will be Saturday morning 7:00-7:45am.  If the race is sold out, there will be no race day registration available.  Race shirts may not be available for race day registrants, so be sure to register early and get the awesome shirt!!

There will be t-shirts and unique awards for all finishers!  You will definitely want one!! Post-race food will be available for all runners.

Clarks Creek Recreation Area also offers primitive tent camping.  This is on a first come-first served basis.  So if you want to experience all this beautiful area has to offer, you can camp for the weekend!
