TOWNSEND, TENNESSEE - The Great Smoky Mountains Half Marathon is set for Saturday, September 10th.
More than 2,300 participants are expected to run the event's two distances: Saturday's half marathon and Friday's inaugural 5K. There are two versions of the 5K: a competitive division and an untimed fun run.
Participants are also invited to try the Black Bear Double, an opportunity to run both events and receive special prizes.
