Here’s what you need to know about the race.
Get Ready to Rock
It’s not called the Rock ‘N’ Roll Nashville Marathon for nothing. The course is filled with live music, and there are also speakers at the mile markers. Plus, the race pacers wear their own speaker packs. You will be jamming every step of the way during this marathon. That’s sure to help you maintain your pace.
In the past, some racers complained about a lack of aid stations and Porta Potties. The organizers made improvements last year, and now you can expect ample aid stations loaded with Gatorade, water, food, and sports gels, along with Porta Potties throughout the course. See, now you don’t have a reason to skip out on the race.
The organizers also made some tweaks to the course to make it last congested last year, and they’re continuing with those changes this year. The race used to start and end on Broadway, and that caused some serious issues for runners. Now, it ends at Nissan Stadium, so you won’t get claustrophobic during your run.
