The capital of the Mid-South may be best known as the Home of the Blues and the Birthplace of Rock ‘n Roll, but listen closely and you’ll hear the steady beat of footsteps all over town. With spacious parks, arterial trails, and a friendly endurance community, you’ll have everything you need to get running.
Where to run:
Hit the Shelby Farms Greenline, a nearly 11 mile foot and bike path connecting Midtown Memphis to Shelby Farms Park, an urban oasis five times the size of New York’s Central Park and teeming with miles of paved and unpaved trail.
Who to run with:
Breakaway Running is the distance hub of the Bluff City, hosting group runs for all paces from two locations throughout the week, including track workouts at the University of Memphis and trail runs featuring free post-run beer.
