Tennessee > Charity Fun Run Half Marathon, 10K & 5K
Clarksville, TN • Saturday, March 3, 2012 • Course Map
Runners will make their way along a looping out-and-back course that runs right up to the banks of the Cumberland River here near the Tennessee-Kentucky border at the all-new Charity Fun Run Half Marathon, 10K and 5K race, which is organized by The Way Baptist Church of Clarksville and is open to the public as well as members of the church who wish to run.
The race also will be run as a benefit for the From the Heart Ministry of the locally-based Crossland Avenue Baptist Church, a charity ministry that provides aid, food and clothing to members of the Clarskville community in middle Tennessee who are in need. The March 2012 race is the event's inaugural running for all three race distances.
All three races will follow an out-and-back course that starts and finishes at Clarksville's Great Escape Movie Theater, on Tiny Town Road. From there, runners in the half marathon head west along Tiny Town Road until they reach Peachers Mill Road, where they turn left and head south toward the race's turnaround point, where Peachers Mill crosses over the winding Little West Fork creek, which feeds into the Cumberland River closer to Clarksville.
There's a brief out-and-back stretch just off Peachers Mill Road, however, that runners will run twice, taking them to the campus of West Creek High School and back before heading north again along Peachers Mill on the way back to Tiny Town Road. Once runners reach Tiny Town Road, they turn right and head east, all the way back to Great Escape for the race finish.
