GATLINBURG, Tenn, (WVLT) -- The Mountain Man Memorial March is a grueling tribute to those men and women serving the country in the military.

The 12th annual event is a 26.2 mile trek through the Great Smoky Mountains on Saturday, April 27.

Military members and cilvians can participate in the marathon, half-marathon, and 10K categories.

The course takes runners through downtown and then makes its way along Highway 321 into the mountains.
