Nashville Running Company's Bells Bend 6 Miler is BACK and in collaboration with the Nashville Outdoor Recreation Festival & Expo at Bells Bend Park on Saturday, April 13th at 8:00am! Please note: usually our races are held on Sunday...this race will be on Saturday prior to the Festival & Expo. So, hang out afterward and enjoy some local vendors, food and an awesome park!

Bells Bend Park boasts 800+ acres of uninhabited natural environment that edges the Cumberland River. The trails are soft – mostly cross country style grass and packed dirt surfaces. There are gorgeous peeks of the river as the course rounds through the park. The well groomed trails at Bells Bend great for trail novices, and those wanting to test their limits can truly fly out here!

There will be water and Huma gels/hydration at the start/finish and at the aid station on the course, but we will not have cups. You MUST carry your own handheld if you plan to drink from the station. We are doing this in an effort to cut down on course trash and keep the park clean. Plan to bring and keep all food trash on your person at all times. If you are seen throwing trash on the ground you will be disqualified from any award opportunity. There will be trash receptacles at the aid station.
