Welcome our newest East Nasties!
The week is a big week for East Nasty. Not only is it Tomato Fest week, but tonight we welcome the newest graduates from our Potato-to-Tomato program! Be sure to cheer and welcome these guys – they have been working hard all summer getting ready to race on Saturday. We are so proud of them! It’s very exciting, and we will have an extra large group this week – which means parking is gonna be tight, so get here early if you can. We’re asking specifically that you avoid parking in Fanny’s House of Music – the P2Ters will be congregating there, as well as parents picking up and dropping off kids for music classes. It’s part of our effort to be good neighbors!
Since the P2Ters will be running part of the Tomato 5K course tonight, we’re gonna run in the opposite direction to keep things from getting too congested. So, tonight is a special one-off edition of Route #8: Rick’s Market.
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.
Tomato Fest 2018!
Saturday August 11th is one of the biggest days fo the year for East Nashville and East Nasty – it’s the 2018 Tomato Festival!!! Run or cheer the 5K, buy one of our new 2018 shirts or tanks, volunteer at our booth, and come out wearing your East Nasty gear and spend the day in 5 Points with us!
Friday T-shirt Pre-sale at NRC! – Our new 2018 Ts and tanks are almost ready and look amazing! They will be available for purchase by the general public at our booth at Tomato Fest on Saturday, but were having a special pre-sale just for East Nasties at Nashville Running Company on FRIDAY evening from 5:30-7pm!

East Nashville Tomato 5K – The East Nashville Tomato 5K is our ‘home race’ and every year East Nasty comes out in force. It’s also the 5K that our P2Ters train to run! It’s not too late to register here: http://www.ymcamidtn.org/events/east-nashville-tomato-5k-2018
East Nasty Tomato Fest ‘Water Tent’ Booth! – As usual we will have a booth set up right in front of 3 Crow Bar and we will be selling our new shirts and serving free water to anyone who is thirsty during the Tomato Festival. It is our way of giving back to the community as a thanks for letting us run on the neighborhood streets. We still need 2 more volunteers to work a 2 hour afternoon shift. The volunteers will be passing out water, selling shirts, refilling coolers, getting ice, and spreading the East Nasty cheer. Sign up for a shift here! Be sure to wear your East Nasty shirt.
