If you’re anything like me, Spring means new running shoes and races to sign up for. If you are looking for a couple challenges in the area, I’d strongly encourage you to check out the following events.
Reebok Ragnar Relay: Ragnar Relay is coming to Tennessee once again! This teamed challenge starts in Chattanooga, Tennessee and finishes in Downtown Nashville. Each team consists of at least twelve runners. Everyone takes turn running a certain amount of mileage, while a van carries the rest of the team. By the time the two days finish, each runner will have completed approximately 11 miles!
This event takes places this Friday, 3/23 and Saturday, 3/24. If you aren’t partaking as a runner, come downtown on Saturday to cheer on the finishers at the wrap up party. For more information, go to www.runragnar.com.
St. Jude Rock N Roll Half & Full Marathon: The annual Rock N Roll Series is coming to Nashville April 26th – 29th. This race is known for its wonderful views of the city, as well as live music from different bands all along the route. There are multiple distances for racers to participate in: 26.2, 13.1, 3.1, and a 1 Miler. These races will benefit St. Jude’s Children Hospital.
