Gladiator and The Wreck fielded a 12-man team at the Smoky Mountain Relay 2024 this past weekend.  It was beyond perfect weather, terribly hard, and every PAX greatly enjoyed the entire experience.  YHC ran in high school, but only started enjoying running since starting F3.  The comradery, cool mornings, and conditioning make us better men.  It was long overdue to introduce the Gladiator to a common route that the Pre-runners frequently take.


Disclaimer given and mosey to the top parking lot on Eves Rd.  Some warmups were done: 10 squats, 20 merkins, 30 freddie mercuries. The PAX paired up Slow and Fast to start the adventure.  The goal is to run and SSH for the six.

The Thang:

Running Eves road towards Holcomb Bridge, waiting for the light, this was the largest migration of men ever witnessed at this intersection at 5:25AM.  Run up the hill towards CHS, stopping at the corner for a repeat of the 10,20,30.  Run over to the light at the entrance of Centennial, repeat the 10,20,30.  Run into the neighborhood and sprint to the top of the hill.  Run to the library, 10,20,30.  Run down fouts rd, 10,20,30.  Sprint up the hill and mosey into the park.  Stopping at the pavilion parking lot for guess what!!  10, 20, 30.  Head back to the flag for some Mary: Tempo Merkins, Tempo Merkins, Gas Pumpers.


Well now PAX, you are all runners.  Congratulations on completing the Centennial Loop.  Join the Prerunners in the future to increase your cardio endurance and enjoy a great warmup before a beatdown.  Come join the team for the Blue Ridge Relay 2024, sign up now! Thoughts and Prayers for our brother at Galaxy who lost his M.
