Join us for the Nashville Half Marathon®, Marathon, & 5K presented by BCBS of TN Community Trust! Whether you’re an out-of-towner or a lifelong local, you will love this route, which takes you through some of Nashville’s most beautiful and historic scenery. The Gulch, East Nashville, and other lively neighborhoods will cheer you on with full support as you run. You will be proud, energized, and fully “Nashville-ized” as you finish the last quarter mile on a triumphant downhill through the honkytonks of Broadway. The ensuing block party will fully reward your accomplishment with music and food.
The Nashville Half Marathon®, Marathon, & 5K presented by BCBS of TN Community Trust is proud to support Gilda’s Club of Nashville. Gilda’s Club Nashville provides a gathering place where men, women, and children affected by all types and stages of cancer, and their families and friends, join with others to actively involve themselves in building social and emotional support as a supplement to medical care. Their services are free of charge. Please join our community and support this local organization.
