About This Activity

The Stroller Derby will be held at the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center in downtown Knoxville. This is one family friendly event that you will not want to miss. A perfect introduction to running for first timers and kids.

The route starts at the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center and runs along the Tennessee River down Volunteer Landing. Runners will then make a turn at the UT Boathouse and continue through a tunnel under Neyland Drive that will join up with the Second Creek Greenway. A gentle climb away from the waterfront will take runners and walkers on a loop around World's Fair Park. The 10-acre park provides a fantastic scenic backdrop with its cascading waterfalls, foliage, and of course the iconic Sunsphere. After making a counter clockwise loop through the park, runners will then head back the same way they came via the Second Creek Greenway towards Volunteer Landing. The race ends at the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center.

The course is 100% paved greenways and sidewalks. There are several pedestrian-friendly railroad and secondary road crossings that will have to be negotiated.

Strollers are encouraged but are not required for participation. Always use caution when running with a stroller.
