Free! 8 Week Running Program Plus Hot to Trot 5K/10K & Volunteer Sign Up

Splashing (err… handing out water to) thirsty runners is a CFK Thanksgiving Day Tradition!

Since inception of the race, CFK has been handing out water and cheering folks on as they run and walk down Parkside Drive at the crack of dawn to welcome in the Thanksgiving holiday. Please join us either by participating in the race (see below for discount code), or helping out at the water table!

If racing, make sure to join CFK’s team by specifying “CrossFit Knoxville” as your team on the registration page.

If this will be your First 5k/10k or you are looking for a plan to PR!

Coach Stephen has put together a 8-Week 5k Training Plan for you to follow!
