Panther Creek Challenge
Once again Panther Creek State Park hosts Treadin’ Trodden Trails Series. This year the main race will be approximately ten miles in length, for the first time they are offering a five mile option that will present runners with a good test of fitness. However, points will only accrue in the ten mile race.
The course will begin at the overlook descend a steep singletrack, and then wind up, down, and around, in a dizzying ten-mile series of loops through the woods and along the pristine waters of the lake. Last year’s third annual event was extremely well received and this year’s promises once again to be an event not to be missed by the avid trailster.

About Friends Groups
In 1993, Tennessee passed legislation authorizing private, non-profit groups to organize for “maintaining and enhancing the purposes, programs and functions of the state park system”. These groups, more commonly known as Friends, are concerned citizens who have banded together to assist in protecting, preserving and promoting the beauty and the splendor of their favorite state park. They give selflessly of their time, talents and energy to help ensure the park’s integrity is intact for future generations to enjoy.
