Join fellow runners for a race celebrating and supporting one of Nashville's best trail and road running destinations!

NEW this year: in honor of Friends of Warner Parks 30th Anniversary we will be hosting a Cumberland Transit Crazy Owl 30-mile run and a 30-mile 5-person relay! We will still be hosting a 5k run/walk. Also NEW this year is a 5k run/walk with your Dog (limited to 30 participants only!). The courses cover both trail/cross-country (rock) and paved drives (road) in beautiful Percy Warner Park.
