Come see what Knoxville has to offer on the beautiful South Shore!
Are you ready to TRI KNOX again?
As our South Knoxville community is growing PBR wants to celebrate the addition of Suttree's Landing on the south side as becoming a staple in the riverscape! Come TRI with PBR and Quest Health and Performance as we traverse through the South Knoxville beauty for a sprint, olympic, or half-iron distance triathlon, or a 5K, 10K, or half marathon run. Something for everyone! The sprint will be a DOWNSTREAM 1000m-ish swim ending at Suttrees Landing dock. The bike ride will head up Island Home to Sevierville Pike and cross under Gov. John Sevier Hwy to Kimberlin Heights. It will then take a spectacular turn onto Burnette's Creek and follow along the shaded cool creekside back to Island Home for 14 miles. Once back to transition the run will take off along the riverside through the historic Island Home neighborhood onto the Will Skelton Greenway. Expect a little elevation, or as we say "Gently Rolling Hills" on this run, but in the shade and along the breezy river. Cruise back to the finish line in Suttree's boardwalk and celebrate with Knoxville's finest! The olympic distance will also include a nice DOWNSTREAM swim from Island Home to Suttree's and head out on the same bike path, except this distance will follow to Hendrons Chapel road and turn around at the Johnson University campus while taking in its beauty. Once back the run will follow the same path and make it all the way past Meads Quarry parking and follow its way back to Suttree's Landing as well. The half-iron distance will also start from Island Home with a brief upstream swim before heading downstream to Suttree's. The bike route is still being finalized, but like the sprint and olympic distances, will showcase the beauty of the South Knoxville countryside. Once back the run will follow the same path as you make your way past Meads Quarry to the Forks of the River and follow its way back to Suttree's Landing as well. All routes are still up for approval and subject to changes as needed. We will post the routes after KPD approves.
Stay tuned for updates on preview rides and runs, as well as open water swim clinics to help you get ready for the big day on the RIVER! Swag will include a nice shirt, an option to purchase a hoodie, and a post-race meal after you get that finisher's medal and gift! For those that still aren't ready for that river experience, new this year will be a 5k, 10k, and half marathon standalone run option. These will all be held on Saturday as well on the same course as the run leg of the triathlons.
