Group Run Training Events Special Events:

Mondays: Meet at the Knoxville Green way system THIRD CREEK parking lot on Neyland Drive near the University of Tennessee Agriculture Campus at 6P.M. Sharp (April 1 through Oct 31). This run follows part of the Glenway system along the Tennessee River in the University of Tennessee area. NOTE: During months where darkness and safety are an issue the group will meet on Cherokee Boulevard/Sequoyah Hills in the parking lot at the bottom end of Cherokee Boulevard (Check web-site or get on e-mail or phone list for updates). Normally the group run takes in about 5 miles. The actual route traveled does change from time to time to have something different. This activity joins with Knoxville Track Club group runners to form a larger group. Usually you can find someone that will travel your pace or be willing to (if you are slow). Rest rooms and water are available at about the half way point near the marina area.

Tuesdays: Meet at the University of Tennessee Tom Black Track at 6PM Sharp. Note: You may want to get there early due the traffic, parking, and for a warm up especially when UT is in major session. This activity is for speed work (or warp waddle speed) if you wish. You can join up with Knoxville Track Club members as part of a larger group and follow their training schedule or you can participate in our starting program depending upon your needs.

First Thursday of each month: (This is for some hill work. Meet in the Lakeshore area at 6PM. From I-40 Exit on Papermill Road and get on Northshore drive, cross Kingston Pike and continue until the second light. Turn left onto Lyons View Pike. You will see Lakeshore on your right. Follow the fence approximately two blocks and turn right into the park. There is a parking lot on the left where we will meet. The trail is 2.2 miles long for a full loop with some steep hills. Restrooms and water fountains are located about halfway and the trail is lighted. This will be only the Penguin group.
Note: Check our web-site for special activities including group runs in different locations such as the Alcoa Glenway system to add variety, and race events where local penguins will participate.

Penguin Wisdom
Running is alternately easy and hard, good and bad, exciting and boring. Like living, it is made up of periods of dreadful sameness interrupted by brief moments of pure exhilaration. The big difference between running and living is that runners can pick and choose those moments of exhilaration."
