Rock Creek Donates $1500 to Cumberland Trail Conference

For Immediate Release

Chattanooga, TN, April 18, 2006 – Rock/Creek Outfitters (www.rockcreek.com) announced today that the Rock Creek River Gorge Trail Race raised $1500 for the nonprofit Cumberland Trail Conference (CTC). According Paul Freeman from the CTC, Rock Creek’s donation will go to the Spring Build, supporting up to 100 volunteers a day as they extend the Cumberland Trail near Caryville, TN. The Cumberland Trail is a beautiful multi-use foot path that will eventually stretch over 300 miles on the Cumberland Plateau.

About 230 people showed up to run, making this the best turnout in the 6 year history of the race. As director Jamie Sanders explains, “We’re very pleased to have a successful race that draws so many concerned people from across the region.” The race took place on a beautiful Spring morning, with the first racers showing up for registration before dawn.

Comment from the Rock/Creek Outfitter President:

“…the work of the CTC dovetails perfectly with our mission to get people outside enjoying our natural resources. We believe that people who have access to the outdoors will naturally become conservationists and will work to preserve the areas where they recreate. It’s great to see so many people up here enjoying the natural beauty of Signal Mountain.”
