Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon organizers are helping participants get a head start on training and stay focused through the holidays in preparation for the March 26-27 race weekend.
Everyone is invited to embark on training runs led by an experienced member of the Knoxville Track Club. The runs are scheduled most Saturdays at 8 a.m. December through March. The training runs are free and do not require registration. Participants can keep pace with others in groups and choose from several distance options.
A full schedule and additional information are available at knoxvillemarathon.com/training. The training runs are presented by the Eddie’s Health Shoppe, Knoxville Performance Lab, and ZenEvo Dark Chocolate.
The Covenant Kids Run Kickoff also is around the corner. School-aged runners will complete the first mile of the race at Zoo Knoxville on Saturday, Feb. 5. The event marks the start of the monthlong marathon children will complete on their own, ending the last mile in World’s Fair Park on Saturday, March 26.
The Covenant Kids Run encourages local children to lead healthy and active lifestyles while being part of an exciting community event. The registration fee covers the cost of the kickoff and final races as well as zoo admission for the participant and a guest.
“Now is the time to get ready for the 2022 Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon. We hope participants will join us for these training runs and events not only to prepare but also to meet others who will be running alongside them on race weekend,” said Jason Altman, Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon Executive Director. “We look forward to seeing people come together to prioritize their health and wellness – individually and collectively as a community.”
