Knoxville Kicker

Kick it up a notch, kick it back with your team, but don’t let it kick you in the butt. The Knoxville Kicker is a sprint adventure race that is perfect for the novice and beginner adventure racer. Come test your outdoor skills against the elements and other teams and see if you can collect the most checkpoints in the fastest time.

Just 2 miles from downtown Knoxville is a 1,000 acre “Urban Wilderness” featuring over 40 miles of trails and diverse ecological features and recreational amenities that will make the REV3 Knoxville Kicker an incredible outdoor exploration.

Participants will start the race in the heart of Knoxville’s World’s Fair Park and progress their way to the Urban Wilderness. They’ll experience running, biking, and paddling in teams of two or three on the 15 to 25 mile course and attempt to hit the most checkpoints in the fastest time. Teams will need to use their skills in route planning, map navigation, race strategies, road biking, mountain biking, trail running, and canoeing to tackle the terrain, obstacles, and team challenges.

This is a great race for any novice racers and there will be optional points for more experienced racers. Come kick it with the REV3 Adventure crew in Knoxville.
