On Saturday Yates participated in the “Shut-In Ridge Trail Run.” It is known as one of the toughest trail runs around.

It was a 17.8-mile trail race that took runners along the historic Shut-In Ridge Trail. It began near Asheville and climbed over 3,000 feet along the ridge line of the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Mount Pisgah parking lot.

Yates trained for the race by running when he found some free time while traveling for the camp movie shows.

Great job Yates!
