Live Music Every Mile
Music makes up the heart and “sole” of this event. Live bands will be performing a variety of music from alternative, classic and punk rock to blues, jazz and soul along each mile of the race course. The bands set the tempo for this marathon party, where runners and spectators alike will be “dancin’ in the streets” to these mini-concerts.
Is your band interested in rockin’ for thousands of runners and spectators? Please email your band information along with an electronic press kit or music sample to Kelsey Morris at KMorris@nashvillesports.com.

Attention Cheer Teams and Dance Squads: we need you! High school and middle school cheer and dance teams are invited to compete in the Spirit on the Course competition. Cheer teams will line the course ready to encourage participants every step of the way. Costumes and themes are optional, but smiles and enthusiasm are required.
Cheer teams participating will not only be supporting the runners and walkers, but they will also be cheering to earn some money! All cheer teams will receive a stipend just for participating and cash prizes will be awarded to the Top 3, including $1,000 for first place!
