Rock & Road Races

Friends of Warner Parks and Start2Finish events held the 7th annual Rock & Road Races on Saturday, October 21, 2017. The race included a 5k, a relay 30-mile race for teams of up to five people, and the Cumberland Transit Crazy Owl 30-mile race. The courses covered both trail (ROCK), cross-country and paved terrain (ROAD) running through the beautiful hills and vales of Percy Warner Park. The Rock & Road truly celebrates Warner Parks as a prime running destination in the mid state. The courses start and finish at the Steeplechase Grandstands with boasting stunning views, great food, and a festive atmosphere. Spectators are also welcome too!

The best part? Funds raised from the Rock & Road will go back into Warner Parks through Friends programs. Whether you’re a hardcore trail junkie or a casual jogger who prefers the paved roadways, your participation means you are doing your part to care for your favorite Nashville running spot!

Race Results from this year’s event can be found below. Stay tuned for details on a 2018 event!
