    The route is challenging, yet rewarding. This 5K loop starts and finishes on the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge with stunning views of downtown Nashville, Nissan Stadium and the Cumberland River. On the way, you will pass by the all-new Nashville Convention Center, Bridgestone Arena, the Gulch, and the Musica statues on Music Row.
