We created this event in 2013 with several purposes in mind. We wanted something in Williamson County that showcased our beautiful area. We wanted something that people looked forward to every year, such as the Franklin Classic 5K/10K. We wanted a race approximately one month after Country Music Half Marathon to keep people motivated and running after that popular race. We wanted it to be accessible, affordable and unique.
The 2013 inaugural event was a huge success. With only a few months in planning, we were able to attract 1200 runners from several states. It was a hot and humid day, but we had 11 water stations keeping people moving. While there were hardly any personal records set, the satisfaction level was high and the course views were “amazing.”
This year promises to be even better. We look forward to seeing you again this year for a challenging, yet rewarding event!
