Music City Triathlon And Kids Duathlon

36 Years of Triathlon Tradition Now in Downtown Nashville
For the 6th year, this 36 year old triathlon will be held in downtown Nashville. Team Magic has managed the Music City Triathlon since 2006.
Team Magic has been informed of some great news for the city of Nashville - adding to the newly developed Cumberland Park under the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge, the east bank is getting further developed along the river adjacent to LP Field - home of the Tennessee Titans. While this is awesome news for the city and all of those that enjoy downtown, this does require a move for the 2014 Music City Triathlon... just a hop across the river to the downtown business and entertainment district!
Swim in the Cumberland River, Bike on a completely closed, traffic-free Ellington Parkway, and Run on a new flat out and back course.
Not ready for the whole thing? Relay Teams are always an option as is our Aquabike Category for those who want to just do the swim and the bike.
The 2-day event will now be staged on Lower Broad from 1st Avenue to 3rd Avenue.
The Triathlon [both distances] takes place on Sunday.
The Swim will be in the Cumberland River, from the west bank dock.
The Bike, thanks to TDOT - the bike course will be a two-loop 20k course totaling 40k on Ellington Parkway. Ellington Parkway will be completely closed to traffic during the event. It will be a slightly different route to and from. Sprint racers will do one loop.
The Run: Since we are going to be hanging out downtown before and after the race, we have decided to flatten things out a bit and head back across the river toward Shelby Bottoms for an out and back course with two different turnaround points for the sprint and intermediate distance (not a two loop course).
