Another race that's back on our schedule is Sharps. We just couldn't stay away. Sharps Ridge Memorial Park has some of the best views of the Knoxville skyline, just off of Broadway in North Knoxville. The Appalachian Mountain Bike Club is currently developing the trails at Sharps. When finished, the proposed trail system will have an estimated 8 miles of singletrack trail. Our original 2016 plan to combine a few miles of pavement with the singletrack trails changed, leaving just a short burst of pavement at the beginning and end of the race, along with a little dash along the road at the top of the ridge. Staging area will be the Lincoln Park Technology and Trade Center on Chickamauga Avenue in North Knoxville. The Kids Trail Run will start and finish at the base of the trailhead, so no road running will be necessary for the kiddos. Should be a fun, rather hilly course, and will give the young'uns a taste of the vertical challenges that lie ahead for their parents. As always, the kids race is only five bucks (or ten if you want a shirt just like the grownups!).
