T-SHIRTS: Special limited edition technical T-shirts will be printed for the series. This is the same shirt as at all other Treadin’ Trodden Trails races; one shirt per runner PER SEASON please. Taking multiple shirts minimizes monies we are able to donate to trail friendly causes.

SPECIAL SERIES AWARDS: Points will be awarded for overall finish (and volunteerism) at each of the TTT Series races. Top point earners at the end of the series (five each male / female and < 40 / 40+) will receive TTT Series awards. Overall top male and female and top male and female masters qualify for free entry to the entire 2016 Treadin' Trodden Trails racing season. In order to qualify for a series award, an individual must be a current KTC member and volunteer at a minimum of two Treadin’ Trodden Trails events. Point totals accrue at all series races, but individual totals are limited to the best scores in a maximum of eight series events.

RESULTS: Results will be available on the Knoxville Track Club website: www.ktc.org

COURSE ETIQUETTE: We reserve the right to disqualify anyone who exhibits unsportsmanlike conduct or is abusive to volunteers. Due to insurance regulations, no headsets, earphones, bicycles, baby strollers, roller blades or pets on the course.

SAFETY: Aid and water stations will be provided, but in an effort to be greener, we require all runners to carry their own water. If you don't own a handheld, consider purchasing one; they're quite useful out on the trails. Otherwise a basic water bottle will be provided. We also strongly recommend that anyone sensitive to insect
stings or bites carry their own medication. Finally, we urge that everyone do some pre-race training offroad, as there is no substitute for experience.  We want you to have a good time.
