The Dirty South Half Marathon traverse the Urban Wilderness area just a stone’s throw south of Knoxville Tennessee. This mostly single track trail winds and weaves through forests and rolling hills, connecting multiple smaller trails. The running surface occasionally meanders onto gravel and asphalt roads, giving you views of local neighborhoods as well as the Tennessee river. Both races loop around back to the finish. The Half Marathon sports one complete loop of the Urban Wilderness while the full Marathon utilizes the loop as well as dips further into the trail system. After completing your race you should be astonished over how much trails we have so close to the city.
