review of 2013 Rock n Roll Nashville Marathon.   

3 / 5 Stars

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.
