On April 5th, 2014 Fleet Feet Sports will be holding the second of three races in the XTERRA TN points series. This event offers three races: a 50k, half marathon (21k) and a 5 miler (8k) at Bays Mountain Park in Kingsport, TN. Put this on your calendar...It's not as tough as you may think!! This is an official XTERRA TRAIL RUN national Trail race and part of the Tennessee XTERRA series as well as the Trailrunner Magazine Trophy Series. Fun, challenging, and exciting are all words that can describe an XTERRA race, and the Power to the Tower will certainly live up to that. Run Faster, we hear banjos....and that's exactly what you will hear as Bluegrass Music fills the mountains! Join us for refreshments,drinks,chocolate milk, after the 5-mile/half marathon/50k!! All three races feature nice single track trails that run through the mountain. The 50k will mostly consist of independent trails with minimal overlap, be on single track for nearly the entire race and feature almost ??6000 feet ?of elevation change. From the lake to the firetower down the valleys and across the creeks then back across the ridges, this race will certainly be one to write home about! Please note, both the 50k and the Half-Marathon are eligible for XTERRA Series Points!
Local time: 5:41 AM
