The Friends of Warner Parks and Start 2 Finish Nashville present the fourth annual Rock & Road Relay, Marathon and 5K!

The Rock & Road consists of a 5k, a relay marathon covering 26.2 miles for teams of two or four people, and the Cumberland Transit Crazy Owl marathon. All the courses cover both trail (ROCK) and paved terrain (ROAD) running through the beautiful hills and vales of Percy Warner Park. Scenic and challenging, this is a unique race you will want to make an annual fall tradition!

Funds raised from the race will go back into the Warner Parks through Friends of Warner Parks programs that preserve and protect the parks for all who use them! 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 help care for your favorite Nashville running spot!
