Nada Tunnel 8K

Event Details

Eastern KY has many challenges and struggles.We sincerely appreciate and thoroughly enjoy seeing all the runners and walkers and families and friends who come to the Red River Gorge area. We didn’t get to do the run last year because we lost our partner and had trouble getting logistics straightened out, but this year We Are Back! And we want to see you here again. We hope you will visit this beautiful area often and we appreciate that you have run with us in the past. This is a fun family event, so sign up now for the Joe Bowen’s Nada Tunnel 8k on June 8, 2019.

The Nada Race will have a 9AM start time. Packet pick-up will be the night before from 5pm-9pm in Nada. More details to come. All runners must sign a USATF waiver in addition to the waiver signed on Run Sign Up. Runners under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian to participate. The race will start at Johnathon Swift Campground and continue into Nada. There will be a shuttle service back to the start line where your vehicles will be parked.

The Red River Gorge is located about 50 miles southeast of Lexington, Kentucky along Kentucky’s gorgeous Bert T. Combs Mountain Parkway. The course starts at John Swift Camp Ground on Hwy 715 about 200 yards from the intersection of Hwy 715 and 77. The course goes west to Hwy 77 and turns left. Cross the Green Bridge over the Red River and continues on for about two miles to the Nada Tunnel. Once through the tunnel, run downhill another two miles into Nada where the race ends. You may try using your Google Maps GPS to get to Nada which is located at the intersection of Kentucky Hwy 15 and Hwy 77 in Powell County. It is 10 miles east of Stanton on Hwy 15.
