This 10th annual 26.2-mile march starts in downtown Gatlinburg at 9 a.m. as a challenging tribute to our men and women in uniform, with Military Heavy, Military Light and Civilian entry categories.
The course includes highway and rural road stretches in addition to rugged terrain and mountain slopes. The event honors 1LT Frank Walkup, a University of Tennessee-Knoxville alumnus who was killed in 2007 in the line of duty in Iraq.
