This year, the Country Music Marathon in Nashville, Tennessee took place in a downpour. However, the rain did not stop the over 30,000 runners and thousands of volunteers from going on with the event. Given the recent tragedy with the Boston Marathon, there was also heighten security. Two videos from Anthony-Denmark Communications cover the rain-soaked activities. The first is “Country Music Marathon 2013 ‘Twanging In the Rain'” with a report on the conditions and risks, the runners were taking. The second, “Country Music Marathon 2013 ‘The Human Spirit'”, shows the physical and emotional toll the pounding rain was having upon the runners. The event was conducted to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
