Mud Island River Park
125 North Front Street

Formerly Race 13.1, Start2Finish's Ole Man River Half Marathon returns to the Home of the Blues on Sunday, April 22, 2018. Starting and finishing on Mud Island, participants will enjoy beautiful water views as they run along the Mississippi River before heading over the Wolf River Harbor on A.W. Willis Bridge, overlooking the Memphis Pyramid. Once over the bridge, runners will proceed through the heart of downtown Memphis, passing City Hall, Civic City Plaza and the beautiful Memphis Park.

 

The next section of the course is a beautiful stretch on Riverside Drive, a street whose name says it all - running along the Mississippi River and Tom Lee Park. Returning on Riverside Drive, runners will turn onto the iconic Beale Street, "Tennessee's Top Tourism Attraction" and the "Official Home of the Blues" that was named America's Most Iconic Street by USA Today and is filled with great BBQ restaurants! The next stretch of the course takes place largely on N. 2nd Street, which will provide beautiful Wolf River Harbor views until runners return to the finish along the Mississippi River back to the heart of Mud Island.
