Wednesday, March 20th- Church Run

March 19, 2019

Route #11

This week is Route #11 – The Church Run. East Nashville is one of the oldest communities in Nashville with many historic buildings dating back to the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Some of the most beautiful architecture is highlighted in the churches – and we pass around 15 of them on this route.  It’s a great week to invite new runners and beginners – because you can easily stop after just 2 miles of the first loop of the figure 8.

We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine, hot or 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. Remember we share the roads with walkers, cyclists, and cars – please, stay on the sidewalks or to the far left on the road, obey traffic signals and stop signs, and cross only in marked crosswalks. Help us be good neighbors to the community!

Ragnar at Nashville Running Company

After the run, head to Nashville Running Company where an ambassador from Ragnar will be there promoting the Kentuckiana Trail Race from 6pm-8pm! There will be pizza and beer (first-come, first-served) , and a sweet discount code (KY19NASHRUN) so make sure you stop by and say hi!

Times, they are a changing…..

We are currently working on a new look and new website launch for our sweet running club! We hope the new website will be more functional and easier to navigate for our current and new runners. It will mean some changes in notifications (less emails, more website and social media), but it will also be easier to find events and different runs/programs happening in East Nasty. Stay tuned…….


Wednesday, March 13th- It’s Electric!

March 13, 2019

Route #10

Tonight is Route #10: Electric Slide. This route is awesome with one of the w̶o̶r̶s̶t̶ greatest hills in East Nashville (I’m lookin’ at you Lenore……) – but you need to be extra cautious at one particular intersection. Right before the three mile mark, you turn left onto 14th from Sevier. Before you turn left onto 14th from Sevier, you need to STOP, look for traffic, then cross the street and RUN ON THE SIDEWALK on the RIGHT SIDE of 14th. BE VERY CAREFUL CROSSING 14th! For those of you who know the area, make sure you alert those around you.

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. Remember we share the roads with walkers, cyclists, and cars – please help us be good neighbors!


Wednesday, March 6th – NRC Pint Night Baby!

March 6, 2019

Route #5

We’re going rouge tonight! (We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled program and route #10 next week) This Wednesday is one of our most popular runs: Route #5: Walking Bridge. It’s always fun to run across the bridge and through downtown. As we run through downtown, remember that you are representing our organization and that our club’s safety, reputation, and standing in the community is a responsibility you share in. That means crossing the street only in crosswalks and intersections – never in the middle of the road. That means stopping at stoplights and to slow down and use caution at intersections. We need you to be respectful and courteous to pedestrians on the sidewalks downtown, along with other runners, cyclists, and motorists that we share the road with. Thanks for doing your part!

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.

Pint Night

It’s Pint Night at Nashville Running Company after the run! If you don’t know where they are at, tonight’s route conveniently runs right past NRC – or maybe just to it. No judgement 🙂. NRC always offers a 10% discount to East Nasty runners. Have a pint of some Yazoo and pick up some new gear while you’re there! Also, Google Fiber, Top Golf, and Results Physiotherapy will be there! You don’t want to miss it!

East Nasty Rock ‘n Roll Cheer Station

If you’re not planning on running the Rock n’Roll Nashville race this year, or have family & friends looking for a place to support on the course, join the official East Nasty cheer station! Best station wins $$ for the club, and is a great time too! The cheer station will be located on 11th Ave, under Demonbreun bridge, just out of the Gulch. More details to come.

Wednesday, Feb. 26- LAST WEEK TO ORDER RACE SHIRTS

February 27, 2019

This week is Route #9: Nissan Stadium – home to your Tennessee Titans! If you get lost, no worries, just follow the trail of tears of disappointed Titans fans.

Safety notes: Please be sure to cross 10th street at the stop-sign and crosswalk at 10th & Fatherland. The increase in density and parking on 10th has made visibility much more difficult – so we need you to be sure to stop at the stop sign, use the crosswalk, and absolutely not cross in the middle of the road.

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. Remember we share the roads with walkers, cyclists, and cars – please help us be good neighbors!

Wednesday Feb 20 – Rick’s Market

February 20, 2019
EN_MapBanner_Route_08-Share

When we created this route way back in 2009 it really did run past a store called ‘Rick’s Market’ and it’s sign very proudly proclaimed “Coldest beer in town!”. But, like so many other things that have changed in our neighborhood this has too. Rick’s is actually home to Roy Meats Service now – a great neighborhood butcher shop. Pick up some steaks or chops, or put in a special order for your favorite cut.

Route safety note: please be careful right at the corner of Lillian and 14th – watch out for car traffic coming over the hill on 14th (they don’t have a stop sign) that may not see pedestrians very well. If you must run with headphones, keep one ear open. But the safest thing is to ditch the headphones and partner up with another runner or 2. Pass the miles with a conversation during your run keeping your eyes and ears open. Look out for each other, don’t leave anyone out on their own! And don’t forget your 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.
