Stones River Relay set for April 5
A family-friendly event, benefiting Stones River Watershed projects. Join us for a 22-mile relay across Cannon County on Saturday, April 5.
Entrants are welcome to participate in 1 or all 3 legs of the relay.
This is a fun, family event. Some do enter competitively. Both children and adults are encouraged to register. However, no children under 6 years old. Children 6-12 years of age must be accompanied by a parent, or designated guardian.
The East Fork of the Stones River begins in Cannon County and flows west and north emptying into Percy Priest Reservoir near Nashville. The East Fork begins as a tiny spring coming forth from a stone outcropping slowly growing as it winds its way through downtown Woodbury and then onward through Rutherford and Wilson counties.
Check-in on Event Day will be 8:00 – 8:30 AM at the Arts Center. Boats will be inventoried there; participants and their bicycles will be shuttled to the Short Mountain School where bikes will be inventoried; runners will then be driven to the top of Short Mountain to the Relay starting point. The Run – first leg of the Relay – will begin at 9:30 A.M.
Proceeds from the event will be shared by the host sites and SRWA to be reinvested in water-focused environmental projects.
