I just saw this story. Right smack here. Apparently, the local leader folks announced Tuesday that Knoxville will host the nation's largest outdoor adventure racing event. (Why do I suspect those hippies over in the city are behind this?)
The Checkpoint Tracker Adventure Racing Championship will be held this October. As the largest bad boy on the block, it features sanctioned events and six divisions across the country. The Knoxville race will be the annual season-ending Championship.
