This week we continue our 12 week cycle with Route #2: ‘Round the Bird. 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.
This run takes us into Shelby Park and is a figure-8 route that crosses over itself. Be sure to high five each other at the intersection! Shelby Park is our local treasure and it can get pretty busy with lots of groups and events making use of it. Please be extra courteous and share the roads and greenway with other runners, walkers, cyclists, and park goers. It is important for us to be good neighbors so we can continue to use the park.
Rock n Roll Weekend
The Rock n Roll (formerly Country Music) Marathon and Half-Marathon is April 28th – less than 2 weeks away! It’s a big weekend for East Nasty with lots of opportunities for you to be involved…
1) Cheer Station
East Nasty started 14 years ago when a handful of runners decided to train together for the Country Music Half Marathon race and each year we have more and more runners training to run 13.1 or 26.2 miles. By far, the most amazing thing you can experience during a difficult race is having your friends and family out there cheering for you and acknowledging your hard work. So, we are once again having an East Nasty Cheer Station for 2018! Word got out about our amazing cheer stop last year in East Nashville, so we’ve been invited to be an OFFICIAL cheer station on the half marathon route this year! Feel free to dress up or wear your EN gear. Bring a chair, food & drinks, cowbells and your SPIRIT FINGERS! We’ll have some tents set-up to provide shade. All are welcome– family, friends, kids, and pets.
Location: The Gulch- 11th Ave under the Demonbreun bridge
Time frame: 7:15am to 11:15am.

Putting on the party is a lot of work and we can always use help! We need volunteers to help with set up, clean up, and a couple things during the event. Contact Sarah Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help!
