Runners follow an out-and-back course through the city at the Nashville Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K, which starts and finishes near the corner of Broadway and 1st Avenue, overlooking the Cumberland River. From there, the course unfolds along the rolling hills of Nashville, taking runners along the city’s famed Music Row, through Shelby Park and along stretches of the Music City Bikeway, the paved running and biking path that parallels the river.
