Strawberry Plains Half & 10k hosts wind, snow and passion.

The Strawberry Plains half marathon and 10k hosted 600+ runners braving East Tennessee’s few winter days with winds up to 20 mph and snow flurries with a temp around 30 degrees. The passion for running was on display amongst the faces and actions of each person running, volunteering or supporting family and friends on the course. The course isn’t known to be flat, but it’s known to be very scenic with horses being the spectators, as 10k runners blaze the course to it’s turnaround at the 3.1 mile marker, then the half marathoners begin their journey to the 6 mile turnaround with the big hill. The event was well organized with some very well designed technical shirts for all runners, the race is the second race of the KTC high mileage winter series with the 3rd being the Whitestone 30k and 3-person Relay on a NOT so flat course. The breakfast at Whitestone is one of the best provided by any race around and isn’t one you want to miss. Take a look at the local news coverage of the Strawberry Plains Half & 10k race and we’ll see you at Whitestone!
