About This Activity

The 2018 Inaugural Rollin on Rocky Top 5k is Ainsley’s Angels in East Tennessee’s first ever high-spirited, inclusion-inspired race that raises vital dollars to support athlete riders and the Ainsley’s Angels mission in East Tennessee. The 5k race includes a friendly course for runners, walkers and athletes of all abilities, with our rider athletes being our primary focus; getting them off sidelines and over finish lines. The race includes live music, giveaways, medals and Tank t-shirts for all competitors and much more! This event is meant to allow our angel runners, athlete riders and entire community come together and celebrate inclusion. This is a family friendly event; runners and walkers are welcome!

Can't join us on race day? That's OK! You can walk, jog, or roll from anywhere, at anytime, and even in segments. Just choose the Virtual option. Participating virtually means that you run your distance (honor system) in your own location, whenever you choose and you still get the bling! We will mail you your medal and race shirt after the September 23rd Race Day.  *Virtual participants are not eligible for race day awards.

Date, Time, and Place: The race will take place on Sunday, September 23, 2018 at Tyson Park at 4 pm.  Awards ceremony will be held at approximately 5:00 pm. 

Course Description and Highlights: The course is a flat, fast, out and back course on the Greenway starting at Tyson Park and heading towards the UT gardens.
