What’s better than running by yourself? Running with a bunch of crazy fun people, that’s what! After a successful first year of Some Like it Hot, we’re bringing the fun of our perennial Freeze Your Half Off to Knoxville for Some Like It Cold.
Please read all of the information below thoroughly before signing up!
The course is on a paved path that meanders around Victor Ashe Park. You will pass the start/finish/aid station area multiple times throughout the race because this is a multi loop course. Each lap will be 2.62 miles, which makes it 5 even laps for half marathoners. An out-and-back section will be marked to get the 5K and 10K up to the correct mileage for the race you choose. The beauty of this setup is that nobody is ever alone for long (hooray for camaraderie!), our rockstar support staff can keep a close eye on everyone and spoil the living daylights out of you, and you can leave a drop bag to access your own personal goodies throughout the day. This is also a good place to add or remove layers, address any potential issues such as blisters, etc.
Our races are super low-key and non-competitive; we’d prefer to race you vs. you, not you vs. anyone else. This is much more of a family picnic atmosphere than a competition. We’re here to help you reach your goals! That being said, our races are timed and results are posted online. All of our races are USATF sanctioned.
Race distances available include 5K, 10K, 13.1 miles (half marathon). There is a time limit of 4 hours for all distances. If you think you’ll take more than 4 hours, we do offer a one-hour unsupported early start.
Your registration fee includes entry into the race distance of your choosing, finisher “medal” (an oversized mug that is ready to fill up with coffee, hot chocolate, soup, or chili at the finish line), swag for all participants is an Awesomesauce knit beanie, and our usual aid station setup including Gatorade, water, Gu, a ridiculous amount of snacks and post-race food. We’ll also have hot coffee and hot chocolate all day long. Mug medals are NOT guaranteed for runners who register after 12/15, so we recommend that you register EARLY.
Shirts are NOT included in your race fee, because we like to let you decide if you want a shirt and what type you’d like. Shirts, tank tops, hoodies, and other extra swag are available for pre-purchase during registration. If you’d prefer to have no swag at all, enter the code NOSWAG for $5 off.
All races are super low-key and non-competitive; we’d prefer to race you vs. you, not you vs. anyone else. Our races are more like large group runs than typical road races. If you want a competitive, mainstream race, there are tons to choose from. That’s just not who we are. If you are a slower runner, a walker, a first-timer, or someone who is intimidated by regular races, we have a welcoming atmosphere focused on having fun and reaching your goals. You’ll have a hard time finding a more supportive atmosphere than at an Awesomesauce Events race!
As with any other race put on by any other company, registration fees and add-on fees are final and are not refundable or transferable for any reason. The races will go on rain, snow, or shine.
