More than 30,000 people are expected to overtake Music City for the full, half, and mini-marathon on April 26th, 2014.

ABC’s Nashville Chip Easton and Clare Bowen will co-headline the post-race concert with Chase Rice being the opening act.

A brand new start line will kick off the event on Lower Broadway which is perfectly suited to capture the spirit of the city.  Runners will pass many Nashville landmarks including Music Row, Belmont University, and it will wrap up outside LP Field-home of the Tennessee Titans.

More than 50 bands will line the 26.2 mile race giving participants entertainment every step of the way.  This is the 3rd year that St. Judge Children’s Research Hospital has been the benefiting charity for the race. Over the 14-year history of the race, runners have raised more than $20 million for a variety of causes.
