Donations come in many forms and this month we’d like to thank Blue Ridge Mountain Sports for hosting two exceptional events that benefitted Legacy Parks. The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour presented a collection of inspiring adventure films to a sold out audience at the Bijou Theater in March. The Disaster and Wilderness First Aid Certification Course, held annually, featured a 2-day hands–on workshop teaching preparedness to the general public.
On May 17th, Rev3 is back in Knoxville with the Knoxville Kicker Adventure Race. Participants will start the race in the heart of Knoxville’s World’s Fair Park and progress their way to the Urban Wilderness as teams of two or three run, bike and paddle the 15 to 25 mile course attempting to hit the most checkpoints in the fastest time. Rev3 Adventure is offering a 50% discount to anyone affiliated with Legacy Parks — the discount code is AMBC50.
Coming up in June, two more exciting events will benefit Legacy Parks. The XTERRA Knoxville will be held on June 7th at Mead’s Quarry and will feature a 1200-meter swim, 16.6-mile bike ride and a 4.1-mile run. The Stroller Derby is a 2.5-mile greenway run scheduled for June 29th at the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center with a 9 am start. This is a family event and participants are encouraged to push a stroller, but all runners are welcome to join the fun. The event is not timed and kids under 10 are free. Both events are produced by Dirty Bird Events.
Legacy Parks appreciates all the wonderful support from our community!
