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 leg is a run (mostly downhill). Stage two is a bike ride (again mostly downhill). Stage three is a paddle (downstream): entrants will switch to canoes or kayaks at the Arts Center of Cannon County. At that location the River is deep and wide enough to accommodate a flotilla of paddlers who will work their way downstream ultimately exiting the River at the newly restored Readyville Mill. Check-in on Event Day will be 8:00 – 8:30 AM at the Arts Center. Boats will be inventoried there; participants and their bicycles will be shuttled to the Short Mountain School where bikes will be inventoried; runners will then be driven to the top of Short Mountain to the Relay starting point. The Run – first leg of the Relay – will begin at 9:30 AM. Proceeds from the event will be shared by the host sites and SRWA to be reinvested in water-focused environmental projects. (The Arts Center is located at 1424 John Bragg Highway in Woodbury, TN 37190)
