Join us for the 2020 Cummins Falls Marathon! Registration Here:

Join us for the 2019 Cummins Falls Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K!

These four races are very scenic with the marathon, half marathon, and 10K routes following the Blackburn Fork State Scenic River for a good portion of the route. The three longer distance races are very challenging with steep hills and great scenery. All four routes are run on the picturesque rural back roads of Jackson County, Tennessee, and are sure to be enjoyed by traditional marathon runners and trail runners alike.

Our goal is to provide a quality outdoor recreational event while raising funds to help purchase additional land that is needed to protect Cummins Falls State Park.
