The Country Music Marathon & ½ Marathon is recognized as the ultimate tour of Music City, USA, featuring historic sites like the Parthenon, Nashville's world-renowned Music Row and an expansive finish line festival outside the Tennessee Titan's home, LP Field, located along the Cumberland River. The event culminates with a post-race concert, which has featured past acts Sara Evans, Brad Paisley, Phil Vassar, Jo Dee Messina, Diamond Rio, Martina McBride and Kenny Rogers.
In 2007, the race's unique blend of music and running produced the largest event to date with 29,082 total registered participants, a sizable increase from 22,007 in 2006.
"I encourage runners and walkers to experience Nashville's hospitality," says Adam Zocks, the event's general manager. "Each year, both the race and the Nashville community receive positive responses from runners across the U.S. and Canada. As the world's second largest combined marathon and half-marathon event, Nashville has proved to be a great running destination."
