review of 2016 Knoxville Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars

Review

Great course through interesting neighborhoods and downtown. Can be hilly in the first half, so not a PR course. Huge atmosphere, but not too big like a big city marathon

Race Tips

Keep some energy for the last hill to the Gay St. bridge

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Park near downtown in Market square garage (free on weekends and 5 blocks from start)
