Country Music Marathon, 2011
Website: (Now Called) St. Jude Rock N Roll Nashville Marathon.
Size: 30,000 runners across all events (full, half, 5K).
Time of Year/Weather/What I Wore: Saturday at the end of April. My weekend was quite warm, so be prepared. I was nervous about overheating but drank ample water and sports drinks, and I ate ice and put it down my sports bra. It was fine.
Race Logistics: This race is easily accessible via air, being in big city Nashville. Just fly in if needed and Uber about as necessary. Start and finish are conveniently located downtown. There are lots of hotels nearby and lots of restaurants and attractions within walking distance of the race and the hotels. It is nice that the race was on a Saturday, so runners could go out on Saturday night and relax around town on Sunday before heading out.
