Stones River Watershed Association plans river relay


The Stones River Watershed Association (SRWA) has announced plans for its Stones River Relay/Race to the Mill on Saturday, Apr. 2.
The 22-mile relay across will benefit Cannon County Stones River Watershed projects.

SRWA is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit all volunteer organization. The mission of SRWA is to protect, preserve, enhance and restore the natural resources within the Stones River Watershed.

The Relay is a community event focused on getting people outside and onto the River. Beginning on Short Mountain – the highest point in middle-Tennessee – the Relay has three stages. The first two legs are a run and a bike ride, and then participants will switch to canoes or kayaks at the Arts Center of Cannon County.

Entrants are welcome to participate solo or as a team to complete one, or all three legs of the relay. Check-in on Event Day will be 8-8:30 a.m. at the Arts Center. The run – the first leg of the relay – will begin at 9:30 a.m.

Prices are as follows: $20 solo; $25 for team of 2; $35 for team of 3. Proceeds from the event will be shared by the host sites and SRWA to be reinvested in water-focused environmental projects.
