Another major donor, Rivr Media, will assist with publicity. Other sponsors include: the UT Federal Credit Union, UT Book and Supply Stores, Brandons Awards and Engraving, Miche Bags, Dr. William Kim Salmons DDS, Pimento’s Cafe & Market, Salon Azure, and Runners Market.
The race is sanctioned and emceed by the Knoxville Track Club. An awards ceremony will follow the race. Awards will be given to the top three runners overall, 1st Masters (40+) and 1st Grand Masters (50+), male and female — as well as awards given by age and gender. The Fastest UT Runner (student, faculty, or staff) and the Best Team (organization with most registrants) also will be recognized. Awards must be picked up on race day; they will not be mailed. Fun Run t-shirts are guaranteed to all pre-registered runners. Shirts will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis on race day.
