Please join us for the 5th running of the Tick Ridge Trek Trail Run presented by Progress Bank. Due to many requests we are adding a 50k distance to the popular 25K and 10K. Be sure to read the 50K details below before selecting this option. We will have a beautiful runnable course, great participants, and delicious post-race food and beverages.
The 25k and 10K trail races are run through the beautiful rolling hills of Southern Tennessee on well-worn tractor trails through woods and pastures. These scenic and hilly runs will challenge the experienced trail runner and be a great run for the newer trail runner who may not be comfortable with some of the more technical trails.

NEW 50K option.
– The 50K will be a double loop of the 25K course and will start with little fanfare in the dark at 6am sharp (the 10k and 25k start at 8am).
– There will be no on course support for the first two hours until we open the aid stations for the 10k & 25k.
– The following time limits will be strictly enforced to get our volunteers off the course at our normal time.
– Complete the first loop in 3.5 hours
– Complete the first 28 miles(last aid station) in 6 hours
– Entry fee for the 50K will be an additional $10.
– Awards will be top 3 Male and Female Overall, we will add top 3 Masters Male and Female if we have enough entries.
– 50K entries will be limited to 50 entries
– Overall elevation gain will be 4000+ feet
