About the Richland Creek Run
The Richland Creek Run & Walk XII will carry participants along a certified five-mile course through sections of the Richland Creek Greenway and Sylvan Park on Saturday, April 21, 2018. Net proceeds from this event benefit Greenways for Nashville, a non-profit organization dedicated to the creation, protection, preservation, and promotion of Nashville greenways.
Time and Course
The run will begin at 8 a.m. outside of the Cohn Adult Learning Center, 4805 Park Avenue, and wind through parts of Sylvan Park before heading onto the Richland Creek Greenway and finishing back at Cohn. (See the course route.) Professional timing will be provided by Start2Finish. The Walk will begin at 8:05 a.m. at the same location and follow the same course. Dogs and strollers are permitted during the race. The race will be held rain or shine. We do not issue refunds.
The Dinky Dash
The Dinky Dash begins at 7:30am and is a fun run for children. The dash is a one mile, out and back course that begins at the Cohn School. It is a great way to introduce young children to a fun run atmosphere. Popsicles and medals are provided after for the kiddos!

The team challenge is an opportunity to run/walk with your colleagues, friends, or family and compete against other teams to build fun, friendly rivalries! No matter the speed, teams are an easy way to encourage teamwork and a fun atmosphere among friends, family, or co-workers. A team must include a minimum of 5 people.
Awards: Team awards will be given in the following categories: Fastest Team, Largest Team and Team Spirit (Theme/Outfits). The fastest team will be determined by the following process:
- The 5 highest placed finishers in their respective age groups will be used to determine the score of each team.
- The top finishers will be determined based on where they place in their respective age group.
- The finish place in the respective age group (3rd place male age group 20-24, for example) of the top five will be added. This will be the score for the team. Lowest team score wins.
