The first race is fast and furious as we run through Overton Park, smack dab in the middle of Memphis. You'll need to jockey for position quickly before you reach the forested area, which is pure single track.
If you're registering for the first time - or just for this individual race - ARRIVE EARLY because the registration line gets long. This is why we encourage you to register online and attend early packet pick-up. Our packet pickup and race day registration will be located at the Rainbow Lake Pavillion.
NEW FOR 2019: We'll be running in the woods bordering the Wolf River in W.C. Johnson Park in Collierville. We will start and finish west of the baseball fields and run on the flat spacious trails in the woods between the ball fields and the river. The course is almost entirely under the cover of trees, except for the first and last 500 meters. The park is located at 419 Johnson Park Drive, Collierville, TN 38017
Nesbit Park in Bartlett (aka Stanky Creek or Bartlett Park) is home to our 8+K. Mountain bikers know Stanky Creek, but do you? Run through the woods on the trail that will take you up, down, and all around. The parking lot where registration and the finish line are both located is on Yale Rd. For your GPS, try using the address 5760 Yale Rd., in Bartlett.
Out of the woods and off to Shelby Farms Park we go!
Do not park at the playground - they need to keep parking available for visitors to the playground. Parking is also not permitted at the stables as this parking is needed for the stables patrons only.
