Rock N Roll Nashville Marathon Reviews


4.2 Stars from 6 Runners

Review

Organization was great, race starts slowly. Hilly course. Be prepared for hot and humid. Difficult to get ready for if you live north of TN.


Race Tips

First half was hilly so make sure you do some hill work as part of your training


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Hotels in Nashville are very expenses. I'd suggest using AirB&B. Try to stay within walking distance of start and finish.

Too early, first hot day means you train in the cold and have to adjust to a very hot day for race day. Limited aid support along the course.


Race Tips

Parking is far from start.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

We brought scooters for the kids to get around to see the racer multiple times along the course. If I was alone it still would be a good idea to have a scooter. bikes would be too big/difficult to navigate in that much foot traffic

Review

Being my first 1/2 I have nothing to compare it to. However, the race was very organized. The expo was great. We spent a few hours in there. It was extremely hot and humid on race day, but there were lots of water and gatorade on the course. They also had a stop with cold sponges to cool off with. And one station with gu. There were people cheering all along the way. And bands ever few miles. The finish line was stocked with drinks, fruit and pretzels. It was in the sun so I made my way to the hotel pretty quickly. Overall a great experience in a great city.


Race Tips

Get to starting line early. There were so many people trying to get to their corals. It was a bit clastaphobic. There are bathrooms every few miles, so don't wait until you have to go. Carry little as possible. Everything you need is on the course. Course is hilly, so prepare properly.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

We stayed in hotel that was within walking distance to starting and finish line. That was helpful. Get to race early.

Review

The rolling hills makes this a very difficult course.


Race Tips

Support on the back half of the marathon stinks. The water is usually hot by the time you get there.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Logistics stink. The start and finish 5 miles a part which means you and 25,000 other people have to take shuttles.


3 / 5 Stars
