Need-based Waivers

Covenant Health and the Knoxville Track Club want to ensure that as many children as possible who want to participate can. A limited number of need-based fee waivers are available for children who cannot afford the registration fee. Monies to cover the expense primarily come from marathon participants themselves.  Every adult who registers for a race is asked if they would like to donate $15 to cover the fee for a child who cannot afford to participate. The need-based fee waivers are limited and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.  Eligible children are those who qualify for free or reduced lunch. 
For more information or to recommend students for a need-based waiver, contact Jason Altman, Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon Race Director at 865-684-4294.
