Set for its 8th annual running in the fall of 2016, the race formerly known as Nashville’s I Run for the Party Half Marathon — and now the Nashville Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K, presented by Hard Rock Cafe — is part of a series of 10K, 5K and half marathon races held around the city throughout the year, which starts in May with the Cinco de Mayo 5K Run/Walk and finishes with the Nashville Half Marathon in November.
The 13.1-mile race starts at the corner of Broadway and 1st Avenue near the city’s Metro Riverfront Park, an outdoor park and concert amphitheater that lies along a bend in the Cumberland River and is also home to the Music City’s historic Fort Nashborough, a replica of the first settlement along the river that eventually grew and became the city of Nashville.
From there, runners will get to see some of the city’s sights including a run up and down its famed Music Row and through Shelby Park, as well as along stretches of the Nashville Greenways, the newly constructed system of linear parks and walking and running trails that connect its downtown areas with nearby residential areas, schools and parks, and often cross streams and bridges throughout the city along the river.
