The Tennessee Sports Medicine Farragut 13.1, 5k, and Kids’ Fun Run, previously known as the Farragut Half Marathon, will take place on Saturday October 28. The half marathon, 5k and 2-person relay all have a 7:30am start time followed at 10am with the Kids’ Fun Run.
This year the annual event will begin and end in the parking lot at 11238 Kingston Pike, which is the former location of Krogers-Farragut across from Farragut High School’s baseball field. Race registrations are still in-progress at http://farragut131.com/.
With upwards of 1200 runners, plus family and friends, event organizers have looked to SHOP FARRAGUT with help in making this event even more exciting. SHOP FARRAGUT has created a tailgate atmosphere with the inaugural “PLANET FITNESS POST RACE PARTY.” SHOP FARRAGUT is still inviting Farragut Businesses to participate in a marketplace showcasing Farragut life while enjoying food and beverage in a festive setting.
As folks send-off and then await the arrival of their racers, they will have the opportunity to visit with representatives from area businesses. The current list of participating businesses includes presenting sponsor – Planet Fitness, plus SouthEast Bank, Costco, TN Bank, Josh Hemphill State Farm, Osteostrong and The Voice Tank among many others yet to commit! In fact, MEDIC REGIONAL BLOOD CENTER will be holding a drive with their mobile unit on site, too!
There will be a DJ with your favorite tunes plus a host of food and beverage providers including a Beer Garden coordinated by the Casual Pint-Farragut. All this fun and activity will be wrapped up in plenty of time for the kickoff of the Tennessee vs. Kentucky Football game! THE POST RACE PARTY is a FREE community event.
