Music City Half Marathon, 10K & 5K

Saturday, March 15, 2025 • Nashville, TN • Course Map

Set for its 19th annual running along the banks of the winding Cumberland River that flows through and around downtown Nashville, the Music City Half Marathon has seen a few hundred runners come out to run and cross the finish line each year for a race that’s hosted and organized by Team Magic, a running and athletic group that organizes races and group runs throughout the year.

Our Recommended Half Marathon: 4 Bridges Half Marathon in Chattanooga, TN

Runners start and finish the out-and-back route for the race at LP Field, the home football stadium for Nashville’s Tennessee Titans NFL franchise.

From there, runners head east and then head onto the Cumberland River Greenway, a roughly 12-mile-long nature and hiking, walking and running trail that winds along the Cumberland River. A brief break onto some of the Nashville city streets from roughly miles two through six break up the greenway route. From the turnaround point, runners return to the finish line entirely along the greenway route.

Though it’s made up of a combination of approximately five miles of paved trails and nearly seven miles of natural surface (including grass, dirt and wood chips) trails, the stretch of the trail that runners follow during the race will be the paved trail sections only.
