    Mark your calendars for the 10th Annual Shoney’s 5K Family Fun Run! The race takes place on Saturday, May 5, 2018 and begins at Nissan Stadium. Whether you are a competitive runner looking for a great race, a power walker looking for a scenic tour through the city or a novice looking entering your first 5K, this race is for you! For the past nine years Shoney’s has supported the men and women in blue by donating 100% of the proceeds raised to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Support Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The fund was created to support the Nashville police department by raising funds to support the officers who have the desire to continue their education. Join us in our goal to support the Nashville police department. To date we’ve raised nearly $200,000 and we are not finished yet!

    At the conclusion of the 5K, our legendary breakfast buffet will be served in Lot T to race and festival participants. The festival is free, family friendly and will feature fantastic live music including a performance by Leanne Pearson, random drawings and a huge display of police vehicles, equipment, helicopter and more! The fun continues with activities for the kids including face painting, giant inflatables, a balloon artist, caricature artist, an appearance by Shoney Bear and so much more!
