An 808 way of life

Rocket Run: August 16th, 2008 – Townsend, Tennessee. An Appalachian Bear Rescue fund raiser.

The beautiful weather and cool temperature made for a wonderful start to the 2008 Rocket Run: The Fastest 10K in Tennessee. In its first year as a 10K, The Rocket Run enjoyed a lot of smiling faces and the encouragement of many, many volunteers from Appalachian Bear Rescue of Townsend, Tennessee.

Jeff Day set the course record with a 32:43 and Allison Maurer was the overall women’s winner with a 43:16. All racers were timed by Total Race Solutions.

As Secretary for the Board of Directors, I enjoyed the process of assembling and helping organize the 10K event. Thanks to all those folks that contributed – both those on the Board and those who are “Black Bear-minded.”

Appalachian Bear Rescue is highly appreciative of everyone’s help.

The photo gallery herein recaps the fun at our event.

For 2009, it’ll be even faster.

Rock on.

    the rocket run was a great success because of David’s hard work and the help of his group of talented interns. Thanks for all you do to help the bears.
