Richland Creek Run: Run, walk or lend a hand


The inaugural Richland Creek Run will take place on Saturday, April 7, at 8 a.m. If you haven't registered to run or walk, visit richlandcreekrun.com to sign up or purchase a commemorative poster (above).

If you'd rather lend a hand than stretch your legs, Renee Bates is looking for volunteers who can help out now and on the day of the race. Send Renee a message at reneeb8s[at]comcast.net or give her a call at (615) 642-3007.

The run will take participants along a five-mile timed and measured course through sections of the new Richland Creek Greenway and Sylvan Park. The race will celebrate the Richland Creek Greenway and provide participants with the opportunity to preview the newest segment of the greenway, which will officially open later this year. Net proceeds from this Celebrate Nashville event will benefit Greenways for Nashville, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the creation, protection, preservation, and promotion of Nashville greenways.

The race will begin at 8:00 a.m. outside of the Cohn Adult Learning Center, 4805 Park Avenue, and will wind through parts of Sylvan Park neighborhood before heading onto the Richland Creek Greenway and finishing back at Cohn. Mayor Bill Purcell will be the official race starter.

St. Thomas Hospital, The Wilson Group, Vanderbilt University and Montgomery Bell Academy are primary sponsors of the Richland Creek Run, which is being organized by the Sylvan Park, Cherokee Park and Richland-West End Neighborhood Associations. The race’s media sponsors are the Nashville Scene, Lightning 100, and Team Green.
