35 Years of Triathlon Tradition Now in Downtown Nashville
The Music City Triathlon made a big move to downtown Nashville in 2009. For the 5th year, this 35 year old triathlon will be held in downtown Nashville, adjacent to LP Field, home of the NFL Tennessee Titans. For the third time, there will be a Kids Duathlon on Saturday. Team Magic has managed the Music City Triathlon since 2006.
Racers will swim in the Cumberland River, bike on a completely closed, traffic-free Ellington Parkway, and run through the heart of downtown Nashville's business and entertainment district.
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 Music City Kids Duathlon will be held on Saturday at 9 AM. Ages 3-15 are invited to register for varying distances based on age.
The Music City Sprint Triathlon is a part of the 2013 SE Region Junior Talent ID Series coached by Kathleen Johnston and Caroline Butler of TriSuccess. The following Team Magic events are part of the series: Buster Britton & Mountain Lakes
The event is staged on the east side of the Cumberland River in the area around LP Field, home of the NFL Tennessee Titans.
Swim Course: The swim will be in the Cumberland River, starting and finishing from the east side - not a point to point swim, but a rectangular type course.
Bike Course: Thanks to TDOT - the bike course will be a two-loop 20k course totaling 40k on Ellington Parkway, which is a short hop from the stadium on downtown streets. Ellington Parkway will be completely closed to traffic during the event.
Run Course: The run course will be a two-loop 5k course totaling 10k of running a nice mix of the east side and the west side of the river in the downtown business and entertainment district.
