Race Start/Finish: The race start/finish is at/near 736 Piersol Road
Millington, TN about seven tenths of a mile past the Meeman-Shelby Forest
Visitor Center. On the off chance that your GPS device can't find the race
start/finish address I note that the park visitor center address is 910
Riddick Road Millington, TN. A map of the roads leading to the race
start/finish can be seen
There is no park entry fee. Parking is at the race start/finish.
Saturday night packet pickup and last minute race registration is at Three
Guys Pizza Pies from 5:30-6:30PM at 9045 HWY 64, STE 105 Memphis, TN. Pick
up your race packet and enjoy some great pizza! Runners who pick up race
packets on Saturday night receive a second Altis pint glass, Altis car
charger, or a Shelby Forest Loop key ring/bottle opener (limited supply).

Marathon Start Time: 8:00AM
Half Marathon Start Time: 8:30AM
Miscellaneous: The usual ultra and trail race food will be provided at the
aid stations, ie. cookies, chips, candies, water, and gatorade. Runners
should bring their own energy gels and electrolytes to the race as
needed/desired. The race is expected to fill but there are slots open as I
write this as there are currently 29 entrants in the marathon and 56
entrants in the half marathon. Weather forecast: start temperature around
40 degrees with a high of about 60 degrees. Runners are welcome to have a
drop bag at the race start/finish. There is an aid station every mile.
Please ensure your race number is visible to the fantastic race volunteers.
The left leg of your shorts is a great place to attach your bib number.
Runners are welcome to pick up race packets for other runners. Frank and I
wish all of you seeking a BQ on Sunday a fun and successful run!
