7th Annual Cathie and Troy Johnson 5K Run/Walk 2021

Saturday November 13, 2021

 Meet at the RBS Church of Christ building before 8am (CST)
in historic downtown Red Boiling Springs, TN

All proceeds benefit the Red Boiling Springs Heritage Museum 

JohnsonsTroy and Cathy Johnson are from Red Boiling Springs, TN. They are avid runners and as such they find themselves in the Guinness Book of Records. They are the oldest married couple to complete a marathon on each continent (aggregate age) at 129 years 109 days. This record was achieved by Cathie and Troy Johnson between 8 February and 19 February 2015. Over the course of their attempt, Cathie and Troy Johnson completed marathons in Australia, the United Arab Emirates, France, Tunisia, the United States, Chile and Antarctica.

The Johnsons lend their support to the creation of a Heritage Museum for their home town. All proceeds from the 5K go to restoring the old RBS Bank building, which is on the National Historic Register. Once the restoration is complete, the building will house rotating displays about the history of the Red Boiling Springs Community and its people.

Because the 5K falls close to Veterans Day each year, we take this opportunity to honor those who have served our country.  A table of honor, displaying photos and stories of veterans, is our tradition, along with recognition of those veterans that are present.

Due to Covid, our 2020 race was cancelled.

Thank you to our 2019 sponsors:
