    Join us for the Nashville Half Marathon, Marathon, & 5K! 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, food, and complimentary Michelob Ultra. This year we are benefiting the wonderful people at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

    Every participant will receive a complimentary tech shirt, custom designed medal, and Michelob Ultra (runners over 21).
