Race Locations

Each pair of the distance events are located in a different part of Shelby County. PLEASE be very familiar with each location BEFORE the day of the race.

5K ( Map): The 5Ks are located at Audubon Park near the Cancer Memorial on Perkins. The gently rolling/fast course circles the park via Perkins, Park Ave, Goodlett, Southern and back to the finish off Perkins. Early arrivals may be able to park across Perkins at the Theater Memphis parking lot but there is also plenty of parking on the grass north of the Botanic Gardens off Cherry Rd. You can arrive from Southern or Park Ave, but we ask that you leave via Park Ave to avoid slower runners still on Southern Ave. USA Track & Field #TN08016MS


5 Miler ( Map): The 5 Milers are located at WJ Freeman Park in Bartlett (closest major intersection is Bartlett Blvd. & Stage Rd.) with the Start Line on Bartlett Blvd. The course winds through the nearby Bartlett neighborhoods and finishes within the Park. There is parking within the Park if you arrive early enough; however, runners also park along the side streets. Please be cognizant of the fact that we are VISITORS in these neighborhoods and at such an early hour, so be respectful of the neighborhoods and the people who call the area home. USA Track & Field #TN08030MS


10K ( Map): The 10Ks are located at beautiful Shelby Farms Park, which is centrally located at the intersection of Farm Rd. & Walnut Grove Rd. The Start and Finish Lines are located near the horse stables at gate 10 off of Mullins Station Road. Parking is ample, but please do not park in the horse stables parking lot. Parking will be in the grassy area inside gate 10 which provides plenty of parking close to the start and finish lines. USA Track & Field #TN14076MS


10 Miler AKA THE BEAST ( Map): Arguably everyone's favorite races are located at Shelby Forest State Park in northern Shelby County. The temperatures begin to drop, the leaves start to change and you get to run in the majestic Forest through it all. Allow yourself at least one hour and 15 minutes drive time as it takes that extra 15 minutes once you get near the park, to drive to shelter six, find parking, and make it to the start line on time. Carpooling is strongly recommended for runners and volunteers. USA Track & Field #TN11047MS


Half Marathon ( Map): The two half marathons are run down the length of Singleton Parkway beginning at Austin Peay Highway all the way down to the entrance of the Naval Base...and back. The race begins in front of the Pizza Hut on Singleton Pkwy (4030 Singleton Pkwy) and parking is available in the field behind the Pizza Hut. Get there early for a parking spot and a potty break.
