This Running Tour event in Montgomery Bell State Park started as a half-marathon in 1979, sponsored by Nashville Striders. It was discontinued in 2007, when the Inn would no longer support the race. The race was resurrected the same year as a 7.5-mile trail run with John Spencer as race director. It was discontinued in 2017. It was resurrected as a 10K on the current course in 2019 with Angela Redden, race director. In 2021 it was so cold and icy that it was shortened to a 5K.
