Wednesday March 21 - Chilly and Nasty

Route #12: The Nasty

Despite what the temperature in Nashville is, yesterday was the first day of spring! This week we culminate our 12 run series with our signature run: Route #12: The Nasty! 6 miles of the worst best hills in East Nashville. You get our famous sticker when you complete the run! If you need a little shorter run, you can run ‘Nasty Lite’ – a 3.7 mile run – but, there’s no sticker reward.

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.

Hammer Down Race

The Hammer Down races (1K/5K,10K) will be at the run tonight with water for you at the top of Mount Nasty! They will be on hand with info and race registration for the April 7th race which is sponsored by JE Dunn Construction and benefits 'Our Kid’s'. Last year they raised and donated a $100K and have raised and plan to donate even more this year! The overall first place race awards are pretty awesome! And here's another great incentive - each registrant will be entered into a raffle for a Suite at Bridgestone Arena for the Predators game the night of the race! This suite will be stocked with drinks (beer and wine included) and food.  There will be (3) names drawn and each winner will received (4) tickets!
