The Annual Mountain Man Memorial March is a 26.2-mile march in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee which will be conducted Saturday, April 27 in Gatlinburg as a tribute to our men and women in uniform.
The Annual Mountain Man Memorial March (MMMM) is scheduled for April 27, 2019 in Gatlinburg, TN. 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.
