For the last two years, David Worth has hosted a 33-mile fun run that starts and finishes at his house near Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This year’s course was a very tough, very scenic circuit of LeConte with 9000 feet of elevation gain. They ascended LeConte via Brushy Mountain and Trillium Gap Trails and came down on Bullhead Trail. The final miles were run using Baskins Creek and Grapeyard Ridge. This section consisted of relentless ups and downs over technical terrain and was considered by many to be the toughest part of the day. 15 runners from the Knoxville area joined David on his annual adventure.
