Race Day Weather and Staying Hydrated


Race day weather conditions are going to be great! It will be mostly sunny with very little chance of rain predicted at the moment. For those of our runners who will be traveling from the western U.S. it’s important to note the humidity in Tennessee. We want to make sure you stay hydrated since climate changes can cause trouble on race day, or when you’re exploring the park.


Be sure to drink more water than you think you need! Dehydration can sneak up on you.

Also consider drinking something with electrolytes, like Nuun, which we have at every aid station in addition to water. Our friends at Nuun shared this article that may help you plan for the heat and humidity.
