Course Overview

The course is about 90% paved and 10% grass trails. Of the paved portion, most are trails that are part of the downtown Nashville Greenways system. A small portion is a bike trail along Davidson Street in East Nashville.  The first 17 miles is mostly rolling hills with one big hill at mile 15.  The remainder of the course is somewhat flat other than two steep bridge crossings. There are a couple of points in the downtown section where runners will cross roads with live traffic. There are volunteers at each road crossing to inform you of when it is safe to cross. Traffic is minimal on a Saturday. Check out photos and maps of the greenways at www.nashville/gov/greenways/. Look for Stones Rivers Greenway, Metro Center Levee Greenway and Shelby Bottoms Greenway.
