Not Country, Rock n’ Roll!

Nashville, TN, United States / 102.9 The Buzz

Since 2000, Nashville’s biggest marathon has been known as the “Country Music Marathon”, but not anymore.

When the annual race returns this spring it will be known as “The St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Marathon and Half Marathon”.

Butch Spyridon, President and CEO of the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp. says “We’re excited that the event’s new name celebrates the diversity of music genres thriving in Music City, and we look forward to participants being part of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series as they run Music City.”

The race under the new name will take place April 30, 2016.
