The Annual Mountain Man Memorial March (MMMM) is scheduled for April 25, 2020 and will be A VIRTUAL RACE ONLY this year. Originally organized in 2008, the march was a personal tribute for University of Tennessee Army ROTC Cadet – 1LT Frank Walkup, a 2005 UT graduate who was killed in action in Iraq. To honor his memory, a group of Cadets from the Rocky Top Battalion marched 26.2 miles with each Cadet carrying a 35-pound rucksack to represent his sacrifice.
