Nashville Mayor Karl Dean is challenging and inspiring Nashville residents to be more physically active. Over 5,000 Nashvillians “stepped up to the challenge” in each of the last two years by participating in the Mayor’s Challenge 5K Walk/Run – the city’s only free 5K event with a free eight-week training program offered through Metro Parks & Recreation. As Mayor Dean’s most popular health event to date, the Mayor’s Challenge 5K brings out Nashvillians of all ages and fitness levels to walk and run the streets of downtown Nashville. The event also includes a Kids’ Fun Run, a 0.75-mile course for children 12 years of age and under. Last day to purchase a t-shirt is 11/4/13.
