36th Annual Queen City Road Race Registration going on now

Clarksville Parks and RecreationClarksville, TN – It’s that time of year again to lace up those running shoes and begin preparing for the 36th Annual Queen City Road Race scheduled for Saturday, May 3rd, 2014.

The Queen City Road Race event is a Clarksville tradition promoting fitness and fun for all ages.

36th Annual Queen City Road Race

The 7K and 5K race route takes runners through the streets of Historic Downtown Clarksville, beginning and ending at Austin Peay State University’s Foy Center, while the One Mile Movement takes you on an exciting tour of a portion of the APSU campus.

For over thirty years, hundreds of Clarksville-Montgomery County and Fort Campbell school students, teachers and family members have participated in this Clarksville tradition.

Runners have the opportunity again this year to push themselves with the 3.1 miles of the 5K race or choose to go even farther to reach a total distance of 4.35 miles with the 7K race – wearing their new dri-fit race shirts! R.A.C.E. Nashville is our official race timing company for the 5K and 7K!

The Queen City Road Race is not just a running competition; it is a promotion for fitness and health in the Clarksville community. As in years past, the Queen City Road Race will include a noncompetitive, 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!

Registration for the Queen City Road Race is simple. Those registering in the 7K and the 5K may do so online or in person. Online registration can be completed by visiting www.cityofclarksville.com/qcrr.

Register now to receive the “early bird” rate of only $20.00 through April 18th. After that date, you may register until the day of the race, but the cost is $25.00.

Participants in the One Mile Movement can register online at www.cityofclarksville.com/qcrr, by mail or in person at the Clarksville Parks and Recreation office at 102 Public Square, Clarksville, Tennessee, 37040.

The 36th Annual Queen City Road Race is presented by the City of Clarksville and Cumberland Bank and Trust and is co-sponsored by Austin Peay State University, the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System, the Clarksville Montgomery County School System Coordinated School Health, The Leaf-Chronicle, and Lamar Advertising.
