Basic Race Details

just cut to the chase

The marathon was inaugurated on November 19, 2006.

This will be a very hilly and challenging marathon in a beautiful park.

The marathon will start at 8:00 AM on November 19, 2017. Please show up by 7:30 AM.

Packet, bib and shirt Pickup is still TBD, but will likely be as follows:
-> If you want to pick up your packets on Saturday, November 18, 2017, we will have a table set up just inside the main entrance of the Nashville Jewish Community Center (JCC) from 2PM to 4PM, located at 801 Percy Warner Blvd, Nashville, TN 37205, (615) 356-7170. Click here for a map to the JCC .

Registration price for 2017 is still to be determined, which includes all fees. Pay more to support the Friends of Warner Parks as part of your registration fee, and you can bypass the weighted lottery. The Friends of Warner Parks dedicates itself to the preservation, protection, and stewardship of Percy and Edwin Warner Parks, where the marathon is held. FOWP works to protect the natural and historical integrity of the area by supporting appropriate recreational activities, maintaining and enhancing its features, and promoting programs that inspire appreciation and conservation of the Parks. Friends is a 501(c)3 organization.

There are no refunds or transfers.

The marathon is proudly not certified and not a Boston Qualifier. It may qualify you for a discharge under AR 635-200, chapters 5-17, however. Then again, it may not.

Roads will not be closed to traffic, other runners, walkers, bikers or animals. The volunteers and timing clock will remain in place for eight hours.

It is rare that a runner encounters a flying monkey. If you do, pray. If you finish, you will receive a medal.

Huma Energy gels will be available 2-4 times on the course. SWORD hydration and water will be provided approximately 18 times on the course.
