The Great Llama Race is a foot race in which local celebrities are paired with a Knoxville school and a llama provided by Southeast Llama Rescue. The race will be run in heats, with the final heat determining 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. The winning schools will win a percentage of funds raised to go to a project of their choice. Southeast Llama Rescue will also receive a percentage of funds raised, with the remainder going to Casa de Sara, a non-profit that provides education and opportunities for at-risk children and families in both Latin America and the greater Knoxville area.
Other activities will be going on throughout the day in addition to the main race. These include vendors, food, entertainers, music, crafts and games, a children’s section, interaction with llamas, and more!
The next Great Llama Race will be held in 2020 in Knoxville, TN.
Admission is $5 and kids 5 & under are free!
