Veterans Heritage Annual Ridge Run
THE 2016 VETERANS HERITAGE RIDGE RUN WILL TAKE PLACE ON NOVEMBER 5TH!
The Veterans Heritage Ridge Run is a USATF Sanctioned 5K trail run and 1 mile fun walk on the hiking trails at Sharps Ridge Veterans Memorial Park in Knoxville, TN. Hosted by the Veterans Heritage Site Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization, the Ridge Run is an annual fundraiser for the construction and upkeep of the new Veterans Park Project at Sharps Ridge and kicks-off Knoxville’s community Veterans Week activities. The race begins at the Lincoln Park Technology Trade School, 535 Chickamauga Ave, and proceed in a loop on the hiking trails of Sharps Ridge. The course is made up of well marked trails through largely wooded and hilled terrain. For those who are not up for a 5K run, there is an easier “fun walk” option on the less difficult portion of the trails, so there are options for everyone in the family to participate!
Your registration includes a really nice race shirt, race timing, water, fruit and snacks.
