Come join us for the 14th annual McKee Southern 6 Trail Race presented by Southern Adventist University's Outdoor Adventure Program! Everyone and anyone is invited to run in the six kilometer trail race and compete for cash prizes. The event will take place on the campus' White Oak Mountain trails in Collegedale, Tennessee.
Event's current local time: 7:16 PM ET
Over $900 will be distributed amongst the 1st-3rd overall male and female finishers, the 1st-3rd overall masters male and female finishers, and the 1st male and female SAU student finishers. We are also introducing a bounty for the male and female course records! See bounty details on our website.
The 6K course is ~3.6 miles with ~440 feet of vertical gain, mostly on rolling, hard-packed mountain bike trails. After a steep climb in the first mile, the last 2.5 miles are a rolling descent to the finish. Whether you are a beginner trail runner or love crushing a short, fast trail course, this race is for you.
Online registration is capped at 215 runners and ends at midnight on February 15th. If you miss the online registration, we can register 85 more participants during packet pickup on the day of the race.
SAU students and faculty get to race for free! Bring your SAU ID card to register on race day, or email email@example.com for a 100% discount code to register online.
Packet pickup and day-of registration begins at 11:00 am. The race starts at 1:00 pm. Address is 4843 Colcord Dr, Collegedale, TN, 37363. A t-shirt is included in your registration fee.
Proceeds from your registration fee will go to support Southern's Adventure Program Affinity Fund. The fund is used to bring disadvantaged, inner-city children from Hamilton County schools to the ropes course on campus and our other outdoor programs. With your help, we can raise money to show hundreds of young students the magic of the woods for the first time.
