The Great Smoky Mountains 85th Anniversary Virtual Race
5K / 10K / Half Marathon
June 15, 2019
Wherever you want!
There's good reason why Great Smoky Mountains is the most visited National Park. With over 11 million visitors each year this amazing area creates lifelong fans with its diverse selection of plants, animals, and scenery.
North Carolina and Tennessee share this national treasure that treats visitors with black bear, salamander, and wild turkey sightings, plus as much flora as a rainforest AND the unique opportunity to spot fireflies displaying a synchronous show unrivaled anywhere in the world.
We join with the park to celebrate it's 85th year as a National Park and you're invited—sign up now!

Other Important Details
Race day is officially June 15th. Registration will be open through that week as supplies last. We anticipate that most people will race that day BUT the advantage of having a virtual race is you can do it when and where works best for you. So it’s up to you. Because we strive to honor the tradition of in-person races, you’ll receive messages as if that is race day for you, but just know that we’re okay with it if you need to do something different.
To maintain the spirit of traditional events, we believe a finisher reward should be earned by finishing the race. We verify that you finished by requiring that you report your time to your account. If you do not report, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REWARD.
