Wednesday Oct 25 – “Hollywood, you look good…”

Route #7

This week we run Route #7: Little Hollywood. Lots of turns on this route. For everyones safety, PLEASE always stay on the left and cross the street ONLY AT INTERSECTIONS. Don’t be a maverick and run in the middle of the road or cross the road before you get to an intersection! Note: when you are running on Eastland, stay on the far left and stay single file over the bridge. Once you cross the gully, there will be a bike lane and then a sidewalk. The dog days of summer look to be behind us and it should be a nice crisp fall evening for a run!

We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine, hot or cold. You can READ HERE for more details on how our Wednesday night runs work. If you are a run/walker and/or want to get a head start, meet at 5:45pm and join our Lasty Nasty Group.

Why We Start in Pace Groups

The primary reason we leave in pace groups is the gaps it creates between groups of runners. This helps with traffic flow at intersections and crossings – allowing cars and others to get through between our pace groups. We don’t want to be a parade! So, listen up for the your pace and start with that group, or wait for the next one. Please don’t start in between groups on your own. Our pace groups start at sub 8-min per mile and go in 30 second increments all the way to plus 10-min per mile.

Lighted and Reflective Gear

Just a reminder that you need to wear something that creates or reflects light on Wednesday evenings. Nashville Running Company is right around the corner from our meeting spot and has several options you can purchase if you’re in need of some gear.
