HardWin Adventures began its journey in Nashville, TN in 2010. The concept for the company was conceived after an exhilarating day in the Smokies, where we resolved to share such adventures with the wider world. The name “HardWin” is a fusion of the original partners, Cody Goodwin and John Hardin, two intrepid souls often spotted scaling towering rock faces and traversing the dense forests of Tennessee. Our inaugural race, the Sasquatch Trot, challenged participants to a 6-mile course through a family farm, navigating unmarked paths in the uninterrupted wilderness. Reflecting on our humble beginnings, it’s remarkable how far we’ve come.

Today, the company hosts approximately 10 events annually, offering running vacations, timing solutions, customized trophy equipment, merchandise printing capabilities, trail-building equipment, and training opportunities for our local community.
