Andrew Jackson Marathon – Jonathan and Leah Harrison with Marj Mitchell

Photos from the Andrew Jackson Marathon (April 2011)

Here are few random photos I took during the 39th annual Andrew Jackson Marathon that took place on April 9, 2011 in Jackson, Tennessee.

It was an unseasonably hot day as temperatures started in the high 70’s and reached about 90 degrees for some of the finishers.

The AJM also hosts a half marathon and 5K during the same time.

The 26.2 mile race takes place on gentle rolling hills in the beautiful western Tennessee countryside.

Land Between the Lakes 50 Mile & 60K Belt Buckle

Here is a look at the impressive Land Between the Lakes 50 Mile & 60K belt buckle. The buckle is given out to the finishers of both distances.

The buckle pictured here is from the 2010 race, but it will likely be the same buckle given out at the 2011 event as well.

The 2011 Land Between the Lake races will take place on March 12, 2011.
