The Music City Half Marathon, 10k, and 5k will be held on the east side of the Cumberland River by the beautifully renovated East Bank Landing, staged adjacent to Nissan Stadium, home of the Tennessee Titan's.
There is complimentary parking in Lot R - directly adjacent to the race staging area, under the Shelby Pedestrian Bridge.
Using the Cumberland River Greenway from downtown to the Metro Center Area. The Half Marathon, 10k, and 5k courses are pure out and back courses, with the 10k and 5k just turning around sooner.
HOW ABOUT THE HILLS? You get a flat start behind Nissan Stadium, then climb from 0.5 ish to 0.9 ish mile up the Woodland Street Bridge, crossing the Cumberland River into the west side of downtown. On your return, you have about a 0.25 mile climb back up 1st Ave N from the Gay Street Connector back up to the Woodland Street Bridge at around mile 5 for the 10k and mile 12 for the Half Marathon, but down hill all the way to the finish line from that point.
