April is Autism awareness! Did you know Autism affects 1 in 68 children and 1 in 42 boys. Autism costs a family $60,000 a year on average. We have decided to dedicate part of our proceeds to Autism Tennessee. What better way to have fun and support a great cause! Come join us April 28th, 2024 for a nice scenic run through Edwin Warner Park Nashville TN for our 3rd Annual Event! We are back at our original location for next year, and we are excited that we are also bringing back our kids 1 Mile fun run, and age group awards! Course will be at Edwin Warner Park located off Vaughn Rd where the picnic shelters are located (9&10) located all the way in the back of park. See map link below of how to get to course.
This race will go rain or shine! There are no refunds allowed. For this we will still be only allowed a maximum of 250 participants to ensure safety of the public. All participants will receive finishers medal and t shirt. There will be trophy awards for overall top 3 runners for both 5k and 10k, 15k (new distance added) and medals for top 3 winners for age groups. Please note runners will have 3 hours to complete the course. Walkers are allowed given they complete in the 3 hours and will have to start after the 1st wave of runners.
