What is the Nashville Marathon?
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Marathon is in partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“This unique event is packed with authentic Nashville music at every turn,” said the official Rock ‘n’ Roll website describes.
“Prepare to immerse yourself in music culture from the fair to the finish line when you compete in the St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series Nashville.
“Experience a legendary tour of Music City, filled with famous attractions like Broadway, Music Row, The Gulch, the Country Music Hall of Fame and more.”
Funds raised go to St. Jude to ensure families never receive a bill from the hospital for “treatment, travel, lodging or food – because all a family should be concerned about is helping their child live”.
