Experience all the Rock ‘n’ Roll Fun with a Shorter Run!

The St. Jude Country Music Marathon & ½ Marathon presented by Nissan is a Nashville tradition that has changed the running landscape in Music City over the past 15 years. Are you one of the locals or Nashville visitors who have not experienced the excitement of the event?

The 2014 Country Music 5k will be a timed event! Live bands and cheer teams on the course, and a rockin’ Finish Line Festival. All 5k participants receive a free ticket to the post race concert at Bridgestone Arena.
