Impromptu Nashville 26.4.26 Marathon to Raise Money for Sandy Hook Tragedy

Nashville resident Robbie Bruce is organizing an impromptu marathon, half marathon, 10K and 30K this weekend simply called the 26for26 Run.

Twenty-six being the number of victims from the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newton, Connecticut. The #26 also being the number of miles in a marathon (26.2).

Money raised through the marathon, scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. Saturday in front of the Nashville Running Company Store, 1105 Woodland Street, will go to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund, organizers said.

Runners can choose to go either 6.5, 13, 19.5 or 26 miles and are asked to donate at least $1 per mile run.

To make a donation, visit the X3 Endurance website.

Over 350 runners have committed to run one of the distances according to the Facebook Invite Page. Will more or less than that number actually show up? Hopefully hundreds will show up to help raise a bit of money for the families devastated by the lone gunman.
