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, including the Farmer’s Market. 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.

Walk Bike Nashville Open House / Keg Night
Walk Bike Nashville, our neighbors on Woodland, would like to get to know us better, so they’ve invited us to an open house just for East Nasty. After the run on October 17th, Come by 934 Woodland for a cold beer or two and to hear about upcoming sidewalk and bike lane initiatives – specifically, proposed changes on Woodland that will affect us all.
