This year's CrossKnox race, starting at 8am on October 9, is a point to point race showcasing Knoxville's Greenway System. The race was originally a 15k but was run in 2010 as a 10 Miler in celebration of running it on 10.10.10, and stayed that way for a couple years before reverting to the 15k distance for 2013 and beyond.
