Groveton was a hot spot for marathon runners this weekend. Nearly 300 of them came to compete in the Davy Crocket Bearchase Run. It's something many of them train for day in and day out. "Started out I couldn't run about 200 yards and I'd nearly fall out so the next week I would run 200 more yards and in about a month I could make a half a mile," runner Ed Win gate said. That was when he started running at 58, now at 72 he's running half marathons and beating runners half his age. And today he proved that with a time of less than 2 hours.
