    This was called a low key half and it delivered – a well done low key run on a greenway. Low key probably included 4 unsupervised road crossings, an open greenway, direction signs and mile markers in chalk on the greenway, swag = a shirt, and no direct police or medical support. All of which made for a really nice early morning run on a beautiful greenway. It also was geared toward runners with a 70 person cap and 2:30 time limit.
    It started at Crossfit Pistol Creek, which is bordering the greenway. Plenty of nearby parking, heated packet pickup and restrooms (with supplemental porta potties). The 6:30 start time helped in many ways – I saw less than 10 people on the greenway that were not in the event, and it left a lot of Saturday to do all the regular things.
    Race production was excellent – good prerace communication, smooth packet picket and race management. Makes sense though, Crossfit Pistol Creek knows athletic events and so does Knoxville Endurance, the two sponsors. There were 3 aid stations with water and gatorade, one also had syrup. Which made for 6 stops on the out and back course.
    The Maryville area is known for its scenic greenways and the race segment lived up to it. My watch had 285 ft elevation gain, just some short inclines, no hills.
    I would definitely run this again, a very pleasant and well delivered event that fits into a weekend smoothly.
