4 Person Relay
The 4-person Relay is your chance to join up with 3 other people to take on the 26.2 mile marathon course through scenic Knoxville as a team. The marathon course has been designed to show-off Knoxville and run through several of its fine neighborhoods. We know that this year, the neighborhoods along the route are planning some great support.
