2019 SWEAT FOR A VET. ALL PROCEEDS SUPPORT OPERATION STAND DOWN AND OPERATION SONG
COME RUN/RIDE IN BEAUTIFUL HUMPHREYS COUNTY TO SUPPORT OUR VETERANS THROUGH FITNESS
RIDE, RUN, OR BOTH, FOR ONLY $35!!! Come join us on August 24, 2019 for a fully supported event originating from, and returning to the Waverly City Park off of Powers Blvd.. City Park (often referred to as Asbury Park) is located immediately north of Highway 70. For just $35 you will gain event registration, a Sweat for A Vet 2019 T-Shirt*, fully supported SAG service and rest stops for the bicycle ride, and food to be served as the cyclists return. Any athletes wishing to participate in both the run and in bicycling may do so with only 1 registration. Your cycling route choice will be gathered upon your arrival.
7 AM RUN- A fully paved trail run in, and around city park. Drinks and snacks will be provided when you return.
7:30 AM RIDE- A fully supported bicycle ride along the clean and well-kept backroads of Humphreys County, Tennessee. Both routes will head north for a short 4 miles before heading east to McEwen, TN. A brief trek through McEwen gives way to some southern travel before heading west deeper into some quiet and canopied tundra. The 28 mile group will break north on Chambers Spring Road to head back in to Waverly finishing with close to 1,500 feet of climbing as the 62 mile group sets out to explore areas surrounding the Duck and Buffalo Rivers and finishing just short of 3,000 feet of ascending. The 62 mile trip takes you through historic Bakerville and rewards you with the Bakerville Rd. climb. Refreshments and refills will be available for you just before you give it your all. After a couple of turns, a return to where the 28 mile route diverted will return you to Waverly and to City Park.
*Registration the morning of the event does not guarantee that your preferred T-shirt size will be available.
