VIRTUAL RACE JUDICATA
We're back! We made the very hard decision to cancel Race Judicata as scheduled in March 2020. But we can't wait to put on our first virtual race! There is a lot of uncertainty these days, but we know the following:
- Exercise is vital during these times
- Virtual races are all the rage
So from June 28 to July 12, 2020, run a 5k or 10k at one of our selected courses and post your results here! This won't be officially timed--there are no timing chips so we are operating on the honors system. So if that's what you're looking for, this might not be for you. But we believe the 17th Annual Race Judicata offers a great opportunity to support our community and get some fresh air on our beautiful greenways.
At the Registration page, you will have an option to donate to ABLE Youth and Achilles International beyond the $10 signup fee! Note: You will select for your donattion to go to the Nashville Bar Foundation, which will then split the donations between the two organizations.
You can also purchase a shirt to commemorate the Virtual Race Judicata! Design is in the works, but it will be a short sleeve shirt. If you're between sizes, we encourage you to size up. We will order shirts to correspond with each order and shirt ordering won't close until the Race closes. Accordingly, you will not receive your shirt until after the race. We will update runners on how to pick up their shirt in the near future.
This is our first (and hopefully last) virtual race, so please bear with us as we organize the race. We are grateful for your patience and support and can't wait to see those results start coming in!

Event details and schedule
MEASURING YOUR RACE
This race will not be chip-timed. If you do not have a GPS watch, we encourage you to download a free GPS app for your phone and measure your race that way: https://www.runnersworld.com/gear/a20865699/best-running-apps/. If you're running a 5k, turn around when you hit 1.6 miles (a 5k is just over 3.1 miles). If you're running a 10k, turn around when you hit 3.65 miles (a 10k is just over 6.2 miles).
Once you've completed your race, enter your results here: https://resultscui.active.com/events/Virtual17thAnnualYLDRaceJudicata. When the race period is closed, we will crown our virtual champions!
We are so lucky that Nashville has so many wonderful places to run. You can run wherever you want, but we have selected three of our favorite places to run as suggestions for the 17th Annual Race Judicata: Virtual Edition.
1. Edwin Warner Park, Shelter 11: This is Race Judicata's spiritual home, so we need to honor our course! Come enjoy all that the Warner Park system has to offer. Map: https://goo.gl/maps/pga7zHc3jLBURSZS7
2. Shelby Bottoms Greenway: Start at the Nature Center and enjoy this quiet trail amidst the bustling activity of East Nashville! Stop for a slice at Five Points Pizza or to-go margarita from Rosepepper after? We won't judge you. Map: https://goo.gl/maps/bqrT4rzmccz9iMkx7
3. Stones River Greenway: As far as starting points go, it doesn't get any better than the J. Percy Priest Dam! Map: https://goo.gl/maps/8W93WJHpHL9CZfaH6
Although running paths are open, please observe running etiquette and take extra precautions while running during COVID-19. Numerous reputable sources have literature on safely running during COVID-19. Additionally, we know that Nashville might be a little warm from June 28-July 12. Please take extra precautions such as running early in the morning or the evening, making sure you're hydrated before running, and bringing water on your run. Please also review the waiver for this race.
