Join fellow runners for a race celebrating and supporting one of Nashville's best trail and road running destinations! With a 5k, a relay marathon for teams of two or four runners, and the Cumberland Transit Crazy Owl full marathon, there's an option for everyone. All the courses cover both trail (rock) and paved drives (road) in beautiful Percy Warner Park. Participants and spectators also get to enjoy the finish line party at the scenic Steeplechase Grandstands and the festivities at the Scott Hollow exchange point. The best part? Funds raised from the Rock & Road Races will be invested back into Warner Parks via Friends of Warner Parks projects. Sign up with your friends today for this one of a kind running event!

"Let us leave a splendid legacy for our children … let us turn to them and say, ‘This you inherit; guard it well, for it is far more precious than money, and once destroyed, nature’s beauty cannot be repurchased at any price.’ " —Ansel Adams
