The best part of a race weekend is stepping beyond the course to explore the streets, immerse yourself in the food and people, and celebrate your accomplishment! And there’s no better place to do that than in Nashville’s Neighborhoods.
The St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville courses feature plenty of iconic Music City sights like Honky Tonk Highway and the Country Music Hall of Fame, but they also showcase so much more: a collection of urban, walkable pockets in the city that take you from loud, lively bars and boot stores to posh restaurants, shopping meccas and even Victorian-architecture lined streets.
Take a sneak peek of them below to help you plan your exploration!
Downtown: Live music, great food, world-famous bars.
Germantown: Nashville’s oldest neighborhood features Victorian buildings and homes galore.
12 South: Boutique shops, local eateries, art galleries and running essentials like coffee.
The Gulch: Upscale restaurants and vibrant nightlife.
Sure, we love the race swag … medals, t-shirts and photos. But we truly remember the experiences, and Nashville has plenty of pre- and post-race experiences, from food and drinks to sights and sounds, that you won’t want to miss.
