Ideally, I would have preferred a race in mid April, somewhere within a 3 hour driving distance and flat. I looked, I found nothing. Next option, somewhere within a 3 hour driving distance between March 1st and May 20th ... and flat. Really, I just want FLAT. I still found nothing. What I did find was a great race held here in my own backyard in good ole Rocky Top.
It's not flat.
Wish me luck!!!
