He was fitted with prosthetics at Walter Reed, and then began rowing, biking, and running. In 2017, he completed his goal of running 31 marathons in 31 cities in 31 days. Learn more about Rob here.

Virtual Goody Bag Information

The Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon Virtual Goody Bag Program is a great way to get information on your goods and/or services in front of many potential customers. It is extremely cost effective too! The Marathon will stuff 9,000 goody bags and will distribute them to all registered marathoners, half marathoners, relay runners, 5K, and Covenant Kids Run participants. Goody bags are an item that runners look forward to and enjoy going through the items inside. Items can include a tangible item in the bags themselves or you can insert a brochure/flier in our Virtual Goody Bag.
