Register TODAY for the 32nd Annual Queen City Road Race
This event is a Clarksville tradition promoting fitness and fun for all ages. The 5K race route takes runners through the streets of Historic Downtown Clarksville beginning and ending at Austin Peay State University’s Governors Stadium while the One Mile Movement takes you on an exciting tour of a portion of the campus of Austin Peay.
Registration for the Queen City Road Race is simple. Those registering in the 5K have the option to register online or in person. There is no extra fee to register online for the 5K race. Participants in the Wilma Rudolph 5K Relay and One Mile Movement can register by mail or in person at the Clarksville Parks and Recreation office at 102 Public Square, Clarksville, Tennessee, 37040.
The Queen City Road Race is not just a running competition, but a promotion for fitness and health in the Clarksville community. This year the Queen City Road Race will include a non-competitive, one mile event. Participants can complete the mile at any speed or rate they choose. It doesn’t matter if you run, walk or skip the mile; just as long as you are up and moving!

Youth Recreation League In Need of Coaches
The Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department’s Youth Recreation Baseball, Softball, and Teeball league is in need of volunteer coaches for teams this upcoming summer season. Teams are made up of children ages 3 to 12. Beginning May 3rd, teams will practice twice per week. Once the season begins on June 7th, teams will continue to meet twice a week, but once for practice and once for games. All games are played at Heritage Park. It is important to fill these volunteer coaching spots in order to allow the children registered in the league the opportunity to play in each game.
For more details on how to become a coach, please contact the Clarksville Parks and Recreation at 931-645-7476 or visit www.cityofclarksville.com.
