Rollin On Rocky Top 5k Run/Walk to benefit Ainsley's Angels in East Tennessee

September 22, 2019

The Rollin on Rocky Top 5k is returning in 2019! We have made a change to the start location. This year we will be starting and finishing at the UT Gardens. This great race will still take place on the greenway with an out and back course to Tyson park and returning to the UT Gardens. 

Ainsley’s Angels in East Tennessee’s high-spirited, inclusion-inspired race raises vital dollars to support athlete riders and the Ainsley’s Angel’s mission in East Tennessee. The 5k race includes a friendly course for runners, walkers and athletes of all abilities, with our rider athletes being our primary focus; getting them off sidelines and over finish lines. The race includes live music, giveaways, medals and Tank t-shirts for all competitors and much more! This event is meant to allow our angel runners, athlete riders and the entire community to come together and celebrate inclusion. This is a family-friendly event; runners and walkers are welcome!

Can’t join us on race day? That’s OK! You can walk, jog, or roll from anywhere, at any time, and even in segments. Just choose the Virtual option. Participating virtually means that you run your distance (honor system) in your own location, whenever you choose and you still get the bling! We will mail you your medal and race shirt after the September 23rd Race Day.  *Virtual participants are not eligible for race day awards.

Date, Time, and Place: The race will take place on Sunday, September 22, 2019, at UT Gardens at 4 pm.  The awards ceremony will be held at approximately 5:00 pm.  

Course Description and Highlights: The course is a flat, fast, out and back course on the Greenway starting at UT Gardens and heading towards Tyson Park. 

Awards: All registered finishers will receive a finisher’s medal.

Rider team awards for the top 3 finishing teams.  *Virtual participants are not eligible for race day awards.
