The event will begin at 8 am with a full schedule of events. The running event will be immediately followed by food, entertainment, and awards. All entrants will have a full day pass to explore the gardens and enjoy the area. The race will include a 4-5 mile trail run and a stroll for those who would just like to walk the course and enjoy the scenery. Event organizers (Team FSS) are donating all proceeds to St. Jude Children’s Hospital and are expecting a large field of runners and walkers once again this year. The event is being sponsored by Fire & Safety Specialists and organized by Team FSS St. Jude. The course will be unique to other races in the area and will feature hills that no other area race can match. The course layout will make for a tough and rewarding run, excellent for advanced as well as novice runners. The scenic beauty will only add to the great experience of the day.
Team FSS St. Jude was organized in 2012 to provide fundraising for the hospital. The group organizes fundraising events throughout the year and participates in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend each December.
