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.
