ABOUT
Nashville Track Club is excited to bring you the 4th annual Ashland City Half-Marathon on Saturday, March 2nd.
This race is a USA Track & Field-sanctioned event. It will take place on a fast, flat, USATF-certified course that is absolutely gorgeous, starting and finishing right next to the Cumberland River at Riverbluff Park in Ashland City, TN.

COURSE
In 2022, the course had to be redesigned, re-measured, and re-certified due to construction on Tennessee Waltz Parkway east of Riverbluff Park. The 2024 course is identical to the one used the last two years – beautiful, flat, and very fast (see links below). The course’s USATF certification number is TN22002MS. This course is eligible for Tennessee single-age state records.
