MARSHALL COUNTY, Tenn. --- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, Tennessee Wildlife Federation and Henry Horton State Park are teaming up on Sept. 21, during the park’s Step Back In Time Festival, for TWRA’s annual Run For The Hungry race.
The race is a partnership that benefits the local Hunters for the Hungry program in Marshall County. Participants have the option of running a 5k or 10k race or they can choose to participate in the triathlon, which consists of running 3 miles, kayaking 3 miles and biking for 6 miles. Triathletes must bring their own bike for the race. Kayaks and lifejackets are provided.
All proceeds from the races go to help supplement deer processing fees for deer donated to Hunters for the Hungry in the local community. Since 1998, the Tennessee Wildlife Federation’s Hunters for the Hungry program has provided more that 6.5 million meals to Tennesseans. The program is a unique way for hunters to donate venison, a healthy source of protein, to those in need, all while helping to manage the state’s deer herd.
Those wishing to cheer on the racers can take advantage of the park’s 17th annual Step Back in Time Festival, which features historical reenactments, vendors, crafters, farmers and more.
Pre-registration is $40 and includes the race and T-Shirt. Entry fee must be submitted with the completed registration form. Pre-register by mail or in person:
