This week we run through one of East Nashville’s most eclectic areas: Route #7: Little Hollywood. . The unique Spanish architecture makes this area unlike anything else in East Nashville. Read about it’s history and join us for a run tonight.
Lots of turns on this route. For everyone’s safety, PLEASE always stay on the left and cross the street ONLY AT INTERSECTIONS. Don’t run in the middle of the road or cross the road before you get to an intersection! There’s a brand new traffic light at Eastland and Chapel (near Rosepepper Cantina) – please obey the traffic signal and cross in the crosswalk! After the traffic signal, 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.
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 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.
