Despite our best efforts to try to host this event on October 4th, we have been informed by the USFS in Tennessee that they will not issue a permit for our event due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in the State of Tennessee. We want to be able to provide a challenging, yet safe event for you all so we are hopeful that 2021 will allow us to come together again for these runs.
