About This Activity

The STRONG TOWER HYBRID 5K has a unique course that is on field and street. The race is chip timed and participtants will receive an awesome tech shirt! (This is a unisex shirt that may run big for ladies.) Field areas are prepped, but runners in the 5k could be subject to wet/muddy conditions. The event is for runners and walkers. Awards will be given to the top 3 male & female overall and the top male & femaie in each age category.

The HOME OF THE BRAVE HALF MILER is an event for every age.  Participants can run/walk the 1/2 mile individually, as a family, or with a grade division from preschool up to 6th grade.  Prizes for everyone and participants will receive a short-sleeve cotton t-shirt with a vintage patriotic theme in honor of our beneficiary, the Fisher House.

Our 2014 beneficiaries are MIDDLE TENNESSEE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL and the FISHER HOUSE at Alvin C. York VA Medical Center- offering free lodging in a "home away from home" atmosphere for families of our Armed Forces, retirees, and veteran who are receiving medical care. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
