The Eighth Annual Mountain Man Memorial March (MMMM) is scheduled for April 12, 2014 in Gatlinburg, TN. Originally organized in 2008, the march was a personal tribute for University of Tennessee Army ROTC Cadet - 1LT Frank Walkup, a 2005 UT graduate who was killed in action in Iraq. To honor his memory, a group of Cadets from the Rocky Top Battalion marched 26.2 miles with each Cadet carrying a 35-pound rucksack to represent his sacrifice. The course takes you through downtown Gatlinburg and then winds its way along Highway 321 and then into the beautiful Smoky Mountains. Come enjoy the scenic views, the camaraderie, and challenge yourself all while honoring the families of our fallen heroes.
