Start spring off with a *bang!* at this urban ultra on a paved greenway trail in Alcoa, TN (near Knoxville). This event started in 2013 and has quickly become very popular, always selling out before the registration closing date. With distances ranging from the half marathon to the ultra-crazy 150 miler Double Barrel, theres something for everyone. Runners will score some great swag and some really cool finishers awards. They can enjoy the optional tasty pre-race pasta dinner; and will be spoiled by great volunteers, heated aid station support, warming stations, and camaraderie with plenty of other crazy ultra runners. This is a great race for first time and seasoned ultra runners alike. Walkers are welcome too. Were here to have a good time!
