Wednesday August 2 - RIDExRUN

Lots of info this week. Be sure to read all the way through!

Route #7

Tonight we run Route #7: Little Hollywood. Lots of turns on this route. For everyones safety, PLEASE always stay on the left and cross the street ONLY AT INTERSECTIONS – never in the middle of the road! Note: when you are running on Eastland, stay on the far left and stay single file over the bridge. Once you cross the gully, there will be a bike lane and then a sidewalk.

A quick note about pace groups...

The primary reason we leave in pace groups is the gaps it creates between groups of runners. This helps with traffic flow at intersections and crossings allowing cars and others to get through between our pace groups. We don't want to be a parade! So, listen up for the your pace and start with that group, or wait for the next one. Please don't start in between groups on your own. Remember, our pace groups start at sub 8-min and go all the way to plus 10-min.

We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine, heat or cold. You can READ HERE for more info on how our Wednesday night runs work.  If you are a run/walker, check out our Lasty Nasty group on Facebook to see if anyone is meeting early to run/walk. Most of that group is participating in, or volunteer coaching, our P2T Couch-to-5K program.


Our new neighbors in Five Points, VERTICITY indoor cycling studio, have a very similar mission to ours. They love to #lovelocal, celebrate the power of community, and believe that sweat is necessary for a healthy body and a full life. Plus they love to run! We're excited to announce that starting this week, their Wednesday 5PM ride will be dedicated to East Nasty, where $2 for every rider will be coming our way to support us as we continue to make East Nashville a great place to live and run, and to make running accessible to everyone in our community. Sign up here each week for their Wednesday 5pm rides (your first ride is free!), and come along to our Wednesday run with their "pack" afterward!
