Race Day Parking
All of the races will start on on the Clinch Ave. bridge, in front of the main entrance to the Knoxville Convention Center. NOTE: This is the same location as last year.

The race start is within walking distance of our four host hotels. But, for those who will need to drive, plenty of parking is available. Some of the options are:
– Park in one of the City-owned lots (parking free on weekends)
– You may also park in one of several lots owned by the University of Tennessee.
– 11th St Parking Garage (at the corner of Clinch Ave and 11th St) – this lot is one block from the start line and one block from the finish.
– Click UTK Maps for a link to UT Parking Maps but note that parking is only available in the lots described above.
Pilot Company Post-Race Party
The awesome Pilot Company Post-Race Party will be held at World’s Fair Park, just steps from the finish line! The celebration will feature food, beverages, live music, and award ceremonies. After you finish the relay, half marathon or full marathon, join us to relax and recover at the Pilot Company Post-Race Party!
