en_mapbanner_route_12

Tonight! 6pm at 11th & Holly we will run our signature route – #12: The Nasty! 6 miles of the worst best hills in East Nashville. Here’s a route map. You get our famous bumper sticker when you complete the run! If you need a little shorter run, you can run ‘Nasty Lite’ – a 3.7 mile run – but, there’s no sticker reward.

The Hammer Down Race (Nov 5th, benefitting Our Kids Nashville) will be on site tonight with registration discounts and a water stop at the top of ‘Mount Nasty’ (around mile 3.75). Yay!

After the run, Nashville Running Company will be hosting its monthly Pint Night, and we will have a few remaining East Nasty t-shrts and tanks for sale there if you missed getting one at Tomato Fest. $20-$25. Cash or cards.

*Note: the Mizuno wear test has been rescheduled.

PR Bandits Saturday Morning Run – Grassland

September 1, 2016

East Nasty is partnering with the ‘PR Bandits’ who are hosting supported long runs on Saturday mornings. This Saturday we will be supplying Nuun on route thanks to Nashville Running Company!

One of our most scenic routes, assuming you like rolling hills across beautiful horse farms. We will be starting from the Grassland Middle School parking lot off of Hillsboro Rd at 6:30am the first Saturday of September. Please note the 30 minute delay from previous runs, as the days are getting shorter, but the tempatures may not get cooler.

This route is an out and back with the water located at 3 miles, and church with bathrooms at 5 miles! Some people may choose to go long and and do the 10 miles before turning back, but 6, 8, 10, 12 mile options are just as beautiful. Paces of all speeds are welcome, and we will have groups of varying distance so no one should have to run alone! If, you have not run this route, this is a run you should not miss!
