About The Big Frog Trail Runs

The Big Frog Trail Runs Half Marathon in Copperhill, Tennessee is a one-of-a-kind race that should not be missed. The 13.1 mile course takes runners through some of the most breathtaking natural scenery in the region and provides an unforgettable experience for all involved.

The route begins at the entrance to Big Frog Wilderness and follows a winding path up into the mountains along meandering creeks. Runners will traverse several low elevation ridges with stunning views of Lake Blue Ridge and surrounding mountains before heading downhill toward Copperhill where they will finish on Main Street. This out-and-back course offers plenty of scenic beauty as well as challenging terrain, with some sections featuring steep climbs and descents.

April is typically mild weather in this region, making it ideal for running long distances outdoors without having to worry about extreme temperatures or humidity levels like those experienced during summer months. You can expect daytime highs of around 75 degrees Fahrenheit (24 Celsius) but overnight lows may fall below 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 Celsius).

Crowds are usually light on race day but enthusiastic participants often come from far away places to take part in this unique event! Special touches like checkpoints staffed by volunteers offering refreshments along the way make it easy for runners to stay motivated throughout their endeavor – even when fatigue sets in after those long mountain climbs!
