Commander Run proves to be tough challenge
Tuesday, April 30, 2013

The event, slated as the “Toughest in Tennessee” held true to its name as participants of the Second Annual FCS Commander Run left panting after the extreme 5K and admitting, “This was definitely harder than last year’s Commander – extremely challenging and fun.”

They are referring to the mud-crawling, obstacle-climbing, extreme terrain course that attracted athletes from all around Tennessee and Kentucky to push their limits on endurance and toughness. Most who participated noted that their times in the “insane obstacle race” were longer than last year with the addition of obstacles on the course.

School President Jon Shoulders said that FCS is pleased to offer this signature event to promote physical fitness and make it something everyone could enjoy.   It’s also a wonderful opportunity for visitors to see our entire 50-acre campus.  The event included the Ultra Extreme, the Extreme 5K, the Mini-Extreme and the Cross-Country 5K – offering something for those at every level of fitness.

Winners from the event benefiting Friendship Christian School include:

Cross County 5K winners were Kaleb Dickerson (Male) and Ashlee Chance (Female).

Mini Extreme winners were Jared Dickey (M) and Zoe Kane (F).

Extreme 5K winners were Kerry Dickerson (M) and Liz Thompson (F).

Ultimate Extreme winners were Kerry Dickerson (M) and Gina Granstaff (F).

Extreme Commander Run participant, Tab Kirkland, who travels to extreme races around the southeast including the Spartan and Warrior Dash, agreed that the Commander Run course was tough – “even tougher than last year.”  “It was a really fun race – challenging and one that’s on my calendar for next year,” he said.

Shoulders said the funds raised from the Commander Run will go into the school’s fund to help offset operation expenses for FCS.

Robert Todd Harrell of Mt. Juliet was charged with vehicular homicide by intoxication for a crash late Friday night on I-40 near Hermitage that claimed the life of a Nashville man. Harrell is the bassist for the rock group, 3 Doors Down. 

The victim is identified as 47-year-old Paul Howard Shoulders, Jr. According to the Metro-Nashville Police Department, Harrell was driving his 2011 Cadillac CTS westbound on I-40 at a high rate of speed when the car clipped a 2003 Ford F-150 pickup truck being driven by Shoulders. The pickup truck went out of control, struck a guardrail, traveled down an embankment and overturned. Shoulders was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected. He was transported to Vanderbilt where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

Harrell is jailed in lieu of $100,000 bond.
