Go Commando another jewel in Clarksville

Clarksville, TN – I am not a runner.  I am barely a walker, but I have many friends who enjoy running.  My daughter has taken an interest in running and I could not be more proud.  The “Go Commando” half marathon this past weekend proves that this event is poised to be one of the best in the country.

When that promoter tried to bring the race back to Clarksville, local sponsors and organizers were not willing to work with them.  The CVB wouldn’t have anything to do with them either, and the race looked like it had no future here.  That is where the good people of Clarksville come in. «Read the rest of this article»
