Spring Rod Run Scheduling History 

The original Spring Rod Run was set for April 16th- 18th, 2020. Due to Tennessee state governor’s safer at home order and CDC guidelines, the event was postponed to June 11th-13th. Although safer at home orders have been lifted, due to social distancing measures set in place, the event has been cancelled.

City manager Earlene Teaster stated, “Public safety is the foundation of any event, but certainly during these unprecedented times surrounding the COVID- 19 outbreak.”

In response to the cancellation, the Rod Run event owner/ planner, Byron Cooper stated, “This is a difficult but necessary decision given our current circumstances. We can now turn our focus to planning a great fall event in September.”
