NASHVILLE (TN Tribune)– For the seventh year, Wilson County Mayor and RTA Chair Randall Hutto is partnering with WeGo Public Transit to transport runners and supporters to the St. Jude Rock ‘n Roll Marathon. 

The train to the marathon is a collaborative effort between WeGo, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and Wilson County. All ticket proceeds will benefit St. Jude. Famous Footwear is supporting the special event train as this year’s corporate sponsor. 

William Drunsic, formerly of The Nashville & Eastern Railroad Corp., as well as the RJ Corman Railroad Co. will each donate an additional $5 to Wilson Rides, Inc., a non-profit for Wilson County Senior needs for each ticket sold for the Nashville Rock ‘n Roll Marathon train. Tickets cost $15 and may be purchased with a credit card through
