Sponsorship Opportunities

Festival Details

Clinch Valley Trail Alliance (CVTA) is pleased to announce the 25th Annual Hill of Truth Festival. The Festival features the 12 Hours of the Hill of Truth mountain bike race on Saturday and the HoT Trot trail running race on Sunday. Last year over 150 racers competed in the Hill of Truth races, the goal for 2023 is to welcome over 200 racers. This year we will offer a new kids race: The 12 minutes of Little Skittle. We appreciate and thank you for your kind consideration of support.

Mission, Vision and Values

Mission: Through active stewardship, advocacy and partnerships, the Clinch Valley Trail Alliance seeks to improve the health, environment and economy of our region by the development and preservation of sustainable, multi-use trails within the City of Oak Ridge and the greater Roane and Anderson County regions of East Tennessee.

Vision and Values: The Clinch Valley Trail Alliance (CVTA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to the promotion of healthy outdoor fun for all ages and skill levels through the creation, enhancement, preservation and stewardship of multi-use trails in the Clinch Valley region. We strive for member diversity from bikers, to hikers, to trail runners, conservationists, and the like. CVTA will work to foster relationships with community leaders, promote volunteerism and outdoor recreation that is consistent with environmental protection, thereby strengthening the individual, family, and community quality of life for generations to come. CVTA will encourage involvement of our area youth through organized youth rides, trail building workshops and other educational opportunities.

Haw Ridge Project: Phase One, Two and Three

Phase One

Clinch Valley Trail Alliance fully funded $12,400 for the completion of Phase One in 2021 and raised over $20,000 of the ~$31,000 needed for the completion of Phase Two during the 2022 Hill of Truth Festival. 

Phase Two

Resurfacing what the locals refer to as the "Perimeter Loop", now known as the “Atomic Ring”, to address drainage issues and sustainability of some of the most widely used trails. Middle Road which runs through the middle of the park is heavily traveled by all trail users and in need of significant drainage work and sustainability improvements. Expected timeframe for completion of work is 2023/2024. Funds raised during the 2023 Hill of Truth Festival will go towards fully funding Phase Two and the remainder will go towards funding Phase Three. 

Phase Three

Create two new trails that will be easily accessible from the Dirt Lab. The Dirt Lab has become the most popular trailhead for all trail users given its easy access to both the greenway and trail system. Sean Leader, owner of Southern Gravity Parks, Windrock Bike Park and a CVTA Board advisor has proposed an advanced jump line, as well as a beginner-friendly trail that would connect Mike's Trail to Ridge Trail. Expected timeframe for completion of work is 2024/2025 with an estimate of ~$72,000 for completion.
