Keep Blount Beautiful and Little River Watershed Association are partnering for the inaugural Little River Run 5K on Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Townsend Abbey. Join both of these organizations for a run along the Little River in view of the Great Smoky Mountains! After the run, everyone is encouraged to hang out at the Townsend Abbey with us for lunch, drinks, educational opportunities and prize giveaways! Participants are welcome to run, walk or even just cheer on their family and friends and come to the after party.

The Little River Run 5K needs volunteers to help with registration and course direction. If you are interested in volunteering, visit the upcoming events tab at to fill out the online form, or contact
