About This Activity

The 2014 Boulevard Bolt will be the 21st anniversary of this annual Thanksgiving Day event. Every year, people all over Nashville and beyond come together to run or walk the 5-mile course on Belle Meade Boulevard. Whether you are a competitive racer, or just want to walk with friends and family, the Boulevard Bolt is a fun event for all and a great way to celebrate the season of giving.

The efforts of many people make the annual Boulevard Bolt possible. Volunteer committees led by members of each congregation coordinate the preparation and race day events. In addition, many generous individuals, organizations and corporations sponsor The Boulevard Bolt and ensure that the funds are raised to help the homeless.
