Why is this a "Must-Do" Event?

Start spring off with a *bang!* at this urban, multi-distance event 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 races ranging from the half marathon to the ultra-crazy 100 miler, there’s something for everyone. There’s even the super crazy Double Barrel option for those who want to do both the 50K/50 miler, the 100K/50 miler, or the absolutely insane 100 miler/50 miler distances back-to-back! Runners will score some great swag and some really cool finisher’s 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. We’re here to have a good time and would love to have you join the Pistol party too!
