Wednesday Dec 20 - Return of the Godfather, and Reverse Nasty!


We've got a special holiday treat this week: East Nasty founder Mark Miller makes a special appearance this week to lead the run! Many of you may not even know 'The Godfather'. Mark stepped down from the East Nasty board last year after starting what would eventually become East Nasty Running Club way back in 2005. We're excited to have him visit this week! And in true Mark Miller style, he's got something "fun" for us this week. We're gonna run... NASTY-backwards


The Nasty - in reverse direction!

The same 6 miles of the worst best hills in East Nashville but in the reverse direction. Here's a Strava map of the this reverse version of the route. And here's a Route Cue Sheet if you don't have a Strava account (but you should get one though - it's free, and all our routes are accessible there). If you need a shorter run, then Route #1 would work well since it follows the first 1.5 miles of this reverse Nasty.

No stickers for this special edition of The Nasty. Instead, Mark said you can take a selfie or snap-chat with him. I mean, he probably said that.

We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine, hot or cold. If you are a run/walker and/or want to get a head start, meet at 5:30pm and join our Lasty Nasty Group. You can READ HERE for more details on how our Wednesday night runs work. Remember we share the roads with walkers, cyclists, and cars – please, stay on the sidewalks or to the far left on the road, obey traffic signals and stop signs, and cross only in marked crosswalks. Since this is an unusual route, be sure to look out for your fellow runners and help to keep anyone from making a wrong turn. 

2018 Half Marathon Training

Registration is open for our spring Half Marathon Training program that starts on January 6th!. Check out all the details and sign up on our Half Marathon Training page HERE. Rumor has it that there may be extras like a brunch or two and free injury screenings involved. We’re still looking for help from a few folks to make this a great experience. First, we need pace leaders for the 2:00 hour group, so if you can help some runners get a PR, let us know! Second, most of us run to eat anyway, so if you’d be able to host a brunch following one of the Saturday training runs, it would be very much appreciated. If you can help with either, please email Patrick Sullivan at
