State fair seeks Funnel Cake 5K runners

Staff Reports • Sep 4, 2016 at 8:00 PM

It’s a race for a funnel cake, and it’s becoming as much a part of the Tennessee State Fair as the giant Ferris wheel itself.

The Tennessee 4-H Funnel Cake 5K, to be held Sept. 17 at the Tennessee State Fair, has become an annual popular event that attracts runners of all ages.

Scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. at the State Fairgrounds on Wedgewood Avenue in Nashville, the 5K will feature both fun runs and competitive running for participants registered in several age groups.
But “best of all,” according to organizers of the event, at the end of the 5K course each contestant will be eligible to receive a free funnel cake.

Proceeds from the Funnel Cake 5K will support the many leadership and citizenship programs of the Tennessee 4-H.

For more information or to register for the race, participants should visit tiny.utk.edu/4H5k16.

The Tennessee 4-H provides opportunities for more than 180,000 youth, serving youth ages 9-19 in every county across Tennessee.

A tradition for more than 150 years, the Tennessee State Fair will open Friday, for a 10-day run. For more information about the fair, visit tnstatefair.org.
