The BRAT will begin in Middle Tennessee at Montgomery Bell State Park. Check-in begins after 1:00pm on September 10. The terrain on this year’s route will be similar each day with rolling hills and valleys and some flat terrain. This year’s BRAT will not have long climbs like last year’s BRAT, but some longer distance days will make the effort level just as high. State parks in middle Tennessee along the BRAT include Dunbar Cave, David Crockett, Henry Horton, Montgomery Bell and Paris Landing.
