COURSE DESCRIPTION & WEATHER: The 0.8 mile loop is paved and circles around the beautiful Granny White Park. The course has a few gentle hills. Temperatures range widely in the first half of November. Over the last few years, November 11th has seen temps from the 30s to the 60s.

 

HISTORY: 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 in McMinnville, TN.  Shelli 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 enjoyed running and pushed herself hard, always setting new running goals to achieve, which is one of the reasons we became such great friends.  My goal with setting up this race & fundraiser is to honor Shelli and ALL veterans…while raising money for a couple of incredible charities in her name.
