Although goats are not vicious, they will nibble clothes, shoe laces, and anything they can fit in their mouth. For this reason, please keep all personal items in a safe location (either in the car or with spectators).


This is a FUN run. The shaded arena allows spectators to cheer on runners. Runners will get 1 can of feed for the goats and proceed to the arena to run the obstacle course with goats. Only runners age 10 + can run the course.


Play with lively Dwarf goats and a lamb. Anyone brave enough to enter this pen of utter cuteness will be taunted by the most playful characters. They may be small but their attitudes are huge!


Parking will be provided by the STAR at 3312 Tipton Station Knoxville, TN 37920.

There will be food trucks and refreshments for purchase.

The race begins at 1pm and the goats will leave by 3pm.
