Queen City Road Race
The race will feature a 10K, 5K, and one-mile route. All three routes will begin and end at the Wilma Rudolph Event Center in Liberty Park. The one-mile route will take walkers and runners along the park’s pond, while the 5K route will feature multiple views of the Cumberland River and take participants through each corner of the park.
The 10K route is described as flat and fast and designed for any runner looking for competition against others or themselves. It takes participants through Liberty Park, down Riverside Drive, along the Cumberland River via McGregor Park, and back to Liberty Park.
An additional 5K and 10K combo option has been added at a discounted rate for runners looking to run both competitions.
All the routes are certified through USA Track & Field (USATF), the governing body for track and field sports, cross-country running, road running, and race walking. The USATF course certification program aims to produce road race courses of accurately measured distances.
“Our primary focus is on providing an exceptional running experience,” said Maggie Houts, Event Planning Supervisor with Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department. “With the Queen City Road Race, we aim to create a unique experience that inspires runners to achieve their fitness goals. We look forward to bringing the people of Clarksville together to learn and celebrate fitness throughout the weekend!”
All participants will receive a Queen City Road Race shirt and medal. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female runners in the 10K and 5K races.
DJ Mike Emrick of We Bring the Party Events will provide music throughout race day.
