Course History Inaugural race was in 2008 with 375 finishers. In 2009 there were 335 finishers. In 2010 the direction was reversed in order to have the runners more spread out before entering Hwy 231. There were 468 in 2010. The race used chip timing for the first time in 2011 with 738 registered. The first 2 miles were covered with ice. The 2012 race had a strong, cold wind from the North, making for a brutal last 3 miles. In 2013 running on Highway 231 was eliminated by having a turnaround on Hurricane Rd at Jennings Pond Rd. Return to the finish via Dude Trail and E Richmond Shop Rd. In 2014 Melissa Begin's 5 year old course record was broken by Gisela Olalde.
In 2016 a new state age record for the distance was set by 14 year old Diego Zuazua from Nolensville, TN. New race director from 2020 is Vickie Spickard.
