KNOXVILLE—Book lovers can show the University of Tennessee Libraries some love by hitting the pavement March 3.

The race begins at 9:00 a.m. in Circle Park. Registration is from 7:45 a.m. to 8:45 a.m.

The Knoxville Track Club will manage the finish line and compile race results. An awards ceremony will follow the race.
