Retro Running – Weekend in the Smokies 5-plus Mile Run @ LeConte Center at Pigeon Forge
Apr 29 – May 1 all-day

The LeConte Event Center in Pigeon Forge will be the site of RetroWeekend, a throwback to the sounds and culture of yesteryear. The weekend, which takes place April 29 through May 1, allows attendees to immerse themselves in the culture, music and feelings of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s.

RetroWeekend offers great opportunities to learn, compete, dance and laugh, all while making a significant charitable impact in the community. From featured workshops on health, wellness and financial management to dance lessons featuring swing, shag and 2-step, the weekend will place mental and physical health at the forefront of participants’ minds.

A specially crafted race will take place on Saturday morning, April 30, featuring a unique “Progressional Start™” race format that allows everyone to “Run at the Front™” regardless of age or ability. Open to all runners of every age, it is the only race of its kind in the country. The “secret sauce” is staggered start times for each age group over 40, so racers are only competing against their peers. The race is 5 miles, 916 yards (not measured in kilometers, just like the good old days!).
