The 16th annual Country Music Marathon and Half-Marathon will take place on Saturday, April 25, 2015. For the fourth year in a row, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the charity partner for the race.
This year marks the second year that the marathon will start on lower Broadway. Historically the race has started at Centennial Park. The finish line will be at L.P. Field.
More than 30,000 runners are signed up to participate in either the Marathon, Half-Marathon, or 5K. Both the Marathon and Half-Marathon are slated to begin at 7 a.m. Saturday.
Music makes up the heart and “sole” of this event. Live bands will be performing a variety of music from alternative, classic and punk rock to blues, jazz and soul along each mile of the race course. The bands set the tempo for this marathon party, where runners and spectators alike will be “dancin’ in the streets” to these mini-concerts.
It wouldn’t be the St. Jude Country Music Marathon & 1/2 Marathon without a live nighttime concert at Bridgestone Arena! After the race celebrate your accomplishment with friends, family, fellow runners and Martina McBride at the Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series!
