Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness Challenge 5K at Baker Creek Preserve is a local East Tennessee race for participants who want to challenge themselves while supporting their urban wilderness. The 5K Challenge is an event for individuals of all ages and will test your strength and fitness while guaranteeing lots of fun and a great outdoor experience.
From see-saws to cargo nets, our challenging but accessible course will put your balance and fitness to the test! The course takes advantage of the existing terrain and trails in the park. Not only will there be over 15 creative, challenging obstacles; the terrain itself is an obstacle. The trail winds up and down the hillside and parallels parts of the downhill mountain bike course. Teams will find themselves challenged by the buddy carry and the steep pyramids.
Racers will finish in rock star style as they race through the finish line chute and under the finishing truss. They will be able to check their results immediately at the results kiosk and online with any smart phone.
