Southern Tennessee Plunge Marathon & 1/2 is October 1st (Special Discount Code)

Last year, the Southern Tennessee Plunge Marathon & 1/2 Marathon took place in Winchester, Tennessee in early October. Not many knew much about the event, but those that showed up were more than impressed by the organization, bling, and swag from the 1st year race.

The half marathon had 150 runners while the full marathon had 48 finishers.  Race Director Whitney Franklin is expecting to build on those numbers for the 2011 version.

This year the full marathon course is suppose to be even faster (fewer hills) and the finishing bling (medals) for both races will be even better than the inaugural version.  We’ve been given a preview of the finisher’s medals and they are VERY nice.

Franklin added, “The course is not pancake flat, but it’s not extremely challenging either. It has a few rolling hills and is very scenic, especially around Tims-Ford Lake.”

Both races start and finish on the square in downtown Winchester.

Also, the Southern Tennessee Plunge Marathon is offering all readers a $10 discount for the race. Just use the code ‘RunItFast’ when signing up.

Run It Fast will also be giving all runners who sign up with the ‘RunItFast’ code a running tech shirt as well.
