2020 Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon Sets New Date for 2020 Races
We are thrilled to announce that we have rescheduled the 2020 Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon to the weekend of November 14-15.

The Covenant Kids Run will take place on Saturday, November 14 at 4:30 pm.
The marathon, half marathon, 2-person relay, and 4-person relay will start on Sunday, November 15, at 7:30 am. They will be followed by the Covenant Health 5K, which will begin at 7:45 am.

As of now, all registered participants are automatically registered for the November 14-15 race weekend. We understand that this date may not work for participants already registered for our March 2020 race weekend. As a result, we will offer four options to currently registered participants:

1. Participate in the November 14-15 race weekend.

2. Defer your entry to the 2021 Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon at no charge.

3. Receive a refund for the registration fee.

4. Donate the registration fee to the Knoxville Track Club, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

All registered participants will receive an email with instructions to activate their choice.

We ask that you select the option that fits you best by May 1, 2020 so we can begin planning for our November date accordingly. If you select no option and allow the deadline to pass, you will automatically be entered in the rescheduled November 14-15, 2020 event.

We would like to thank leaders with Covenant Health, the City of Knoxville and its Special Events office, the Knoxville Police Department, Mayor Kincannon’s office, the Knoxville Track Club, and a dozen other community partners for making this postponement a reality. We also want to thank you, our participants, for remaining patient and understanding as we navigated this process during an unprecedented time in our lives. There is so much going on in the world right now, but we hope that this announcement brings some hope and positivity to you and something to look forward to in the weeks and months ahead.
