Rains Cant Keep Runners From Helping Fisher House 2009: Saturday Exception

Rains cant keep runners from helping Fisher House

Saturday was no exception, but the athletes turned out again at Beachaven Vineyards and Winery for the thrill of competition and a just cause.
About two-dozen people took part in the duathon on Saturday, which consisted of a two-mile run, 13-mile bike ride and another two-mile run. All of the proceeds from registration fees went to the Fisher House at Fort Campbell. “I like the run, I like the people,” said Jason Haggard, who took part for the second year. “(The Fisher House) is just an added benefit I don’t mind spending my money on.” Haggard said Saturday’s event, which saw a light sprinkle and temperatures hovering around 60 degrees was much better in terms of weather. “Last year there was a tornado the night before the run,” he said. Most of the participants said they didn’t mind the weather, and once the duathon began, cold was not an issue.
Maria Duncan, a Fisher House volunteer, said the weather was probably a factor in the turnout, but was appreciative of everyone who joined the event.
