Wednesday April 5th – Suds and Duds

April 4, 2017

Route #2

This week we continue our 12 week cycle with Route #2: ‘Round the Bird.  This run takes into Shelby Park and is a figure-8 route that crosses over itself. Be sure to high five each other at the intersection! We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine, sweltering heat or bitter cold. If you are a run/walker and want to get a head start, meet at 5:45pm and join our Lasty Nasty Group. You can READ HERE for more details on how our Wednesday night runs work.

Did you know that East Nasty hasn’t cancelled or missed a Wednesday night run since we started doing them way back in the summer of 2008? That’s almost 9 years! (Sidebar: How about a 10th Anniversary run in Summer 2018!?) We’ve dodged some storms, delayed the start time for lightning, and enjoyed many miles in the rain – but we always run. As Drew says: “The sun always shines on East Nasty!” This Wednesday may see some inclement weather, but we hope that won’t stop you from coming out and here’s why…

2017 Race Shirts and Tanks! …and Pint Night!

This is the week to order our 2017 race shirts and tanks! And this is the ONLY Wednesday you will have the chance to try them on and find your size. You can do that at Nashville Running Company after the run because it’s Pint Night. Also, Lee needs help drinking all that beer. So, even if you don’t come out to run – please try to make it out to NRC to have a pint and try on our new shirts and/or tanks. If you can’t do this Wednesday, you can come by NRC anytime they are open from now through the weekend. Samples of all of the items are now there to try on (Men’s and women’s tanks and short sleeve shirts). Monday morning at 10am is the deadline to order.

Get more details on the Shop page and then order online here:

This years shirts and tanks are from Nike and are super comfortable! Don’t miss your only chance to get one and be recognized as part of the best running club in the city on race day!

Wednesday, August 7th – Tomato Fest Week!

August 6, 2013

This is going to be a great Wednesday night and a great weekend in East Nashville…


Wednesday’s Run

Wednesday at 6 a.m. or 6 p.m.

To get us ready for this Saturday’s race, we’re going to take a hiatus from our route sequence and run the Tomato Fest 5k course.  (Here is the map) But remember, this is not the actual race… so run safely. There are a couple of places on this route where you will need to make a left turn – make sure that you cross at an intersection.

Tomato Route

Wednesday afternoon, we will be joined by our Potato to Tomato training group and by former world record holder Arturo Barrios.  This is a big moment for our couch to 5kers, so be sure to offer them a word of encouragement!   On the other end of the spectrum, Barrios is the first man to ever break 60 minutes for a half-marathon. His fast running days are behind him, but he’s always willing to give a few pointers for your next race…

Also, if you have not signed up for the race yet, folks from the Y will be at the run in the afternoon taking any last minute registrations.

Ragnar Relay

Also on Wednesday afternoon, a representative from the Ragnar Relay will be at the run giving out free swag and a promo code for $150 off!   Do not miss this chance if you are even thinking about putting together a Ragnar team.

Pint Night

It’s the first Wednesday of the month, so that means pint night at Nashville Running Company.

The Festival

Of course we want you to run the 5k this Saturday morning, but if you miss the race, you need to come down to 5 Points to enjoy the festival.  As you may know, it is almost a requirement that the temperature and humidity are both over 90 for the Tomato Fest.  So every year East Nasty has a water stop for the festival.  At our booth outside of 3 Crow Bar we hand out the extra water from the race, and keep 3 coolers full of cold water to hand out to festival goers.  It is a great way to give back to the community that we love, but we need your help. We still need a couple more volunteers to take a 2-hour shift where you do three things (1) hand out water, (2) sell the soon to be released summer East Nasty tees, and (3) explain to people what “East Nasty” means.  It’s really a lot of fun, and a great way to meet people.

Sign up for  shift here.
