Rock/Creek released a new addition to its Rock/Creek Trail Series videos today. With an aim of inspiring beginners and newcomers to the sport, the video features stay-at-home mom Laura Davis. Laura shares her story, which began with picking up a trail running training schedule, and led to the loss of 25 pounds in 3 months while preparing for Rock/Creek's Scenic City Trail Marathon.
Race Director and Wilderness Trail Association (WTA) Executive Director Jonathan Mobley, who identified Laura as a candidate for the project, sees the film as part of his organization's broader purpose: "Laura is speaking a message that we hope many will hear. As we expand our mission as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we hope to provide resources, education, and events for anyone who wants to enjoy wilderness trails in greater Chattanooga." Race proceeds from the Rock/Creek Trail Series go fund outreach efforts and continued trail building and maintenance.
