Welcome to the King Tornado 10K page!
The King Tornado 10K is Bristol's most exciting new running event. The event is a fundraiser for Athletics at King College. The race will start and finish on King College's beautiful campus and will offer a 10-kilometer (6.2-mile) scenic rolling tour of Bristol. The race will be professionally timed by WeRun Events using ChronoTrack Timing Tag technology.
The King Tornado 10K fills a much-needed void in the northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia race calendar, which is full of 5K races, but offers few top quality 10K races. This inaugural event is for runners of all ages and abilities. All participants will receive a commemorative race shirt, and age group award winners will not be disappointed.
The fast, but challenging USA Track & Field-certified course is expected to attract some of the finest elite runners in the area, providing an exciting race up front ahead of the masses. Great prizes being offered to the top 3 male and female open and the top masters, couple with the race director’s experience at putting together elite running events, will ensure that a quality field is amassed. The race will be sanctioned and insured by USA Track & Field and it will be professionally timed by We Run Events, the Kingsport-based company that directs the Crazy Eights 8K run.
At the finish runners will be entertained by live music, will be offered a vast array of refreshments, and can interact with event sponsors.
