With less than 24 days until the 2018 Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville race weekend, it’s a good time to check out the event perks. The Music City has an incredible amount of stuff for runners to enjoy between Thursday, April 26th through Sunday, April 29th. All you have to do is show your bib or finisher medal.
You can check out the complete list here, but highlights include $3 off general admission to the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum, a free appetizer with purchase of an appetizer of equal of greater value and $4 Bloody Marys all day on Sunday, 4/29 at Honky Tonk Central, Rippy’s Bar & Grill and Tootsie Orchid Lounge. Get a $3 discount on the Old Town Trolley Tour for any of their daytime hop on/hop off tours on Saturday or Sunday. As well as 2 for 1 beer all day and night on Sunday at Mafiaoza’s Pizzeria & Neighborhood Pub.
And, if you haven’t seen the course for the RNR Nashville 26.2, 13.1 or 5k, you can check them out now. This year, the course is improved with more road width and less turning at the start of the half and full marathons. Half Marathon runners pass through Bicentennial State Park before crossing the Woodland Street bridge into the finish line at Nissan Stadium. Marathoners experience additional highlights through historic Germantown, MetroCenter, East Nashville, and Shelby Park. The top highlight of the 26.2 course is the opportunity to run on the field at First Tennessee Park. Everyone gets to enjoy an awesome finisher party with Michelob ULTRA, food from local food trucks and the Finish Line Festival concert.
If you are still interested in registering for one of the races, there is still time! Online registration cut-off is Sunday, April 22nd at 11:59pm PST. There is no race day registration, so sign up before race weekend. Use code RNRBRP2018 to save $15 on the marathon and half marathon!
Hope to see some of you in Nashville later this month!
