Thursday, November 23rd, 2017: Belle Meade Boulevard Bolt 5-miler
Achilles athletes and guides are always thankful for the pre-turkey annual Thanksgiving Day Boulevard Bolt in Belle Meade. There is always a great turn out from our Achilles chapter for this out and back 5-mile course! It’s flat, it’s fun, and it makes the feast even more enjoyable! Proceeds from the Boulevard Bolt are donated to the homeless community in Nashville.

Achilles Nashville is headed to Sacramento, California this year for the International Marathon & Relay. This unique opportunity gives athletes the chance to either compete in a relay or complete a solo marathon. The 26-mile course runs from Folsom Dam to the State Capitol in Sacramento. The relay is held at the same time and on the same course as the marathon. Relay legs are as follows: leg 1 is 7.3 miles, leg 2 is 6.2 miles, leg 3 is 7 miles, and leg 4 is 5.7 miles.
