On September 8, 2020, Lieutenant Colonel Shelli Huether and two fellow Tennessee Air National Guard members (Captain Jessica Wright and Senior Master Sargent Scott Bumpus) were involved in a fatal plane crash near the Warren County Memorial Airport in McMinnville, TN. Their current assignment was with the 118th Wing in Nashville, TN which specializes in Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR).

Shelli is a dear friend of mine and while on this earth, she had a servant’s heart and spent countless hours volunteering with the USO, Operation Stand Down, and many other charities and non-profit organizations. She also loved to run and pushed herself hard…always setting new running goals to accomplish. It’s one of the reasons why we became such great friends.

My goal with setting up this race, is to honor my amazing friend…while raising money for a couple of different charities in her name.

RACE COURSE: A 0.9 mile (estimated) loop around beautiful Sarah Benson Park in Thompson’s Station, TN.

The goal is to run or walk as many miles as you can in the 8 hours. All registrants receive a t-shirt, medal, and race bib/timing chip. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in-person finishers. Lunch will be provided.
