Billed as "Tennessee's Oldest Marathon," the Andrew Jackson Marathon

takes runners on a tour of the northwestern outskirts of the city,
along a largely flat course on paved surfaces. The USATF-certified
event, which for the half participants begins at 7:30 AM, starts and
finishes at the city's Union University.
