About This Activity

Nashville’s Metro Water Services, the Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation (TDEC), and the Tennessee Stormwater Association(TNSA) have teamed up together once again to host the 5k Urban Runoff run in Nashville. The run begins at the Bicentennial Mall and weaves its way past several cool and innovative green stormwater management practices.In addition to viewing examples of ”green” stormwater practices along the route, the race will also parallel and highlight a section of the Cumberland River, Nashville’s most precious water resource for which innovative stormwater design concepts will be key in preserving for future generations.

A portion of the  net proceeds will go to the Tennessee Stormwater Association (TNSA) to continue to offer this healthy and fun public educational opportunity each year and assist local governments that promote water quality health awareness & local clean water efforts.
