History: The Covered Bridge Run is not new to Oneonta. The race has had many great directors such as Lynn Pass, Jim Murphree, and Hal Buckelew. In 2016, the Community Arts Council of Blount County took it over under the direction of Angie Hogeland. It then became a fundraiser, benefiting the arts for Blount County. The run is a 5k (3.1 miles) and 10k (6.2 miles) road race beginning and ending in The Gym parking lot. The 5k is certified. The race is held in conjunction with the Covered Bridge Festival. We encourage runners to stay after the race and visit the Covered Bridge Festival in downtown Oneonta.
Registration opens February 20, 2018!
