2024 Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon – Virtual Events

The 2024 Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon is proud to include Virtual Options! Participants who want to participate remotely in the 2024 event can do so through our virtual event options. This allows for participants to complete their mileage on their own at the place of their choosing; bike trail, neighborhood, treadmill, and more! This also enables them to complete their mileage on their time during race week (March 31-April 7, 2024). We have Virtual Event options for the marathon, half marathon, 5k, relay, and kids run.

Participants who wish to register for a virtual event can do so by selecting their event from the drop down menu on the marathon’s registration page (for example: “Marathon – Virtual Edition”). Here is a direct link to registration:

Fittest Company Challenge and Fittest School Challenge
Participants in the Virtual Events also count toward their company or school total for the Fittest Company or Fittest School Challenge! Just be sure and include your Company/School during the registration process.

Instructions for Submitting Virtual Results
Thank you for participating in the 2024 Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon – Virtual Edition! We have received many questions about where, when, and how to submit results.

When: You’ll be able to submit your virtual results starting on Sunday, March 31, at 12:01 a.m. You can submit your results until Sunday, April 7, at 11:59 p.m. Be sure and submit your results during the week-long window!

Where: Go to our event page found here and click on “Submit Virtual Results” button.

How: Submitting your virtual results is very user friendly. You can input your data manually, or you can choose to upload your data from your third party service (Garmin, Strava, etc.). However, if you need assistance, click here for a thorough article by that explains step by step how to submit your results.

NOTE: If your third party service tries to upload a distance longer than the one you are registered for, it will give you an error message and ask you to input manually. For example, if you register for the marathon and your Garmin says you ran 26.35 miles, our results system will require you to change your mileage to just 26.2 miles for proper submission.

What: You will be able to view comprehensive data including total miles, pace, elevation, and overall placement.

Why: Because you believe in a healthier community just as we do!
