Packet pick up is painless at a local running store. Parking there sucks so be prepared to pay to park in a garage. Race day parking is easy. The city parking lots revert to “ special event” rates=$20. Very close to the start. The course for the full marathon is boring. One loop through music row, then around Titan Stadium through the industrial park to the greenway? Along the river. It’s an out and back loop. The pavement is asphalt but broken and patched so many times. It is seriously tough on lightweight running shoes. So after the turn around it’s back around Titan Stadium and towards the finish line ( for the half runners). Full marathon runners break off, head back towards the stadium, run around it again, and head further down the green belt. It’s a boring run in that you feel like you’re repeating yourself. And you are. Spectators are very sparse. That’s because this is a small run-not the huge field like the spring Nashville marathon (R&R). Finish line is nice with the free cold pizza. I ran the full in 2015 and wasn’t going to run it again. I forgot and here I am. I won’t run the full again. I think it is a better than average half and a boring full.
