Quarry Crusher Run
Vulcan Materials Company
Sat, Nov 09 8:00 am


Vulcan Materials Quarry Crusher Run is set to put Nashville-area runners and walkers to the ultimate test on Saturday, November 9 at Franklin Quarry on Downs Blvd. The high adventure 3.6 mile (single crusher) or 7.2 mile (double crusher) run/walk will take participants down through the quarry past towering limestone rock features, then back up to the finish line. Along the way runners and walkers will travel more than 440′ of elevation change from our underground portal entrance to an overlook of the entire operation. “While each race in the Quarry Crusher Run Series is unique, our race at the Franklin Quarry is the only one that is a surface and underground mine,” said Josiah Standridge, Franklin Quarry Plant Manager. “We’ve designed the course to allow runners and walkers an opportunity to get up close to the portals of our underground mining operations.” Vulcan Materials Company is the nation’s largest producer of construction aggregates that form the building blocks for the nation’s roads, bridges, homes, hospitals, schools, office buildings and places of worship. While running or walking the quarry, participants will gain a better understanding of where these essential materials originate. Event proceeds will benefit BrightStone, a Franklin-based organization that provides adults with intellectual and developments disabilities with year-round vocational training and educational programs.
