The Great Llama Race will be held on October 6th, 2018, in Knoxville, TN. It 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 the funds raised, with the remainder of the money going to Casa de Sara, an international non-profit with headquarters in Knoxville. The remainder of the money goes to Casa de Sara, a 501(c) that provides education and opportunities for at-risk children and their families to improve their lives and their communities. Casa de Sara has programs in Bolivia and the greater Knoxville area.

Come out and watch llamas race with local celebrities, see entertainment, have food, do activities, explore vendors, play with llamas, and win prizes! There will also be a 5K in the morning prior to the event beginning at 10:00 am. Entrance to the event is free for all 5k participants.
