This week we run through one of East Nashville’s most eclectic areas: Route #7: Little Hollywood. 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! Please obey the traffic signal and cross in the crosswalk at the traffic light at Eastland and Chapel (near Rosepepper Cantina)! After the traffic signal, stay on the far left and stay single file over the bridge in the bike lane and then back onto the sidewalk after crossing the gully. ANd, of course, don’t forget your lighted and reflective gear.
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.
Flying Monkey Marathon and NRC Aid Station
The infamous Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon is this Sunday and lots of Nasties are running it! As always, Nashville Running Company will have an aid station at the Luke Lea Scenic Overlook which will aid racers at miles 6 and 19. Come help hand out water, gels, snacks, and cheer on your fellow Nasties! If you’ve never been to an NRC aid station at Monkey, then -TRUST ME- you have been missing out! It’s really something special! Check out the Facebook event for details and directions: https://www.facebook.com/events/318272485636134/
Our annual Holiday Party is set for Wednesday December 5th. We’ll have our normal run, then immediately afterward everyone is invited to join us at Smith & Lentz Brewing for some food, brews, and fun. We’ll have complimentary chili/soup and S&L will be offering a discount on pints. Smith & Lentz is kid friendly. This is also a time where we get a list of our “members”. East Nasty is organized and recognized non-profit status under the umbrella of the Road Runners Club of America, and there are costs associated with that along with our operations. So, if you consider yourself a part of East Nasty, we ask each of you to bring $$ to help us offset these costs. This allows us to keep doing all the things we do – such as offer free half and full marathon training, a free couch to 5k program, our big Post-Marathon Party, insurance for the club, etc. We may also have some East Nasty gear for sale if you are looking for Christmas gifts!
