Cummins Falls Marathon, Half, 10k, 5k

Cookeville, TN

Join us for the 2020 Cummins Falls Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K! 

These four races are very scenic with the marathon, half marathon, and 10K routes following the Blackburn Fork State Scenic River for a good portion of the route. The three longer distance races are very challenging with steep hills and great scenery. All four routes are run on the picturesque rural back roads of Jackson County, Tennessee, and are sure to be enjoyed by traditional marathon runners and trail runners alike. 

New this year, we will be offering a discount for teams of 5 that register together! Grab a few friends and signup for the race as a team and receive $5-$10 off your regsitration! 

Our goal is to provide a quality outdoor recreational event while raising funds to assist in the expansion of facilities and events at Cummins Falls State Park.
