Race Information

Located 35 miles Northeast of Knoxville, Panther Creek State Park will play host to Tennessee’s hottest ultra trail run: The Dirt Circuit. Offering 12 and 24 hour races, the Dirt Circuit is sure to deliver a challenge to runners of all backgrounds and abilities. The Dirt Circuit is 3 miles of trail mostly resembling that of a cross country course. The loop course is a combination of wide and single track trails through fields and woods with two wooden bridge crossings. The course winds gently around the park offering many scenic views of Panther Creek. The Dirt Circuit starts and finishes at the soccer fields, which serve as Base Camp for the weekend. For this spectator-friendly race, athletes, vendors, family, and friends are encouraged to enjoy the fun at Base Camp throughout the weekend. All races start at 8:00 am Saturday. The 24 hour race will continue through the night. The course will be marked with orange flags and tape for daytime use and glow sticks for when the sun goes down. Head lamps are strongly encouraged. Relay teams do not have to hand off at every lap. Teams are welcome to develop their own strategy for when and who will run next for their team. The Dirt Circuit race is cup free. Runners are responsible for carrying their own hydration systems with them. Runners must have their official race number visible at all times to ensure they receive credit for each lap. Pacing / Crewing of runners is permitted. Unsportsmanlike conduct, course cutting, littering, or violation of any of the policies set forth will be grounds for disqualification.

Aid Stations

There will be one aid station which will be located at Base Camp. It will be stocked with water, electrolyte drink, gels, bars, fruit, snacks, and first aid. Runners are encouraged to bring their own race nutrition as well.
