5K AT FONTANEL - SATURDAY MORNING - JUNE 15, 2019

http://RunFontanel.com


Join us on Saturday morning, June 15, 2019 for Nashville’s premiere 5K wooded trail race (run/walk) and the (optional) family-friendly, competitive games, activities and musical entertainment in the beautiful rolling hills of the Whites Creek Valley, just north of the Music City, Nashville, TN.

It's an exciting, action-packed, half-day event, held each year at the Fontanel on the Saturday morning before Father’s Day. A perfect Father’s Day gift for dads (and granddads) and quite possibly a new Father’s Day weekend family tradition!

Come early for the 5K at 7 AM and run (or walk) one of the most pristine trails in Middle Tennessee.

You also get tasty snacks; cold bottled water; a Chick-fil-A continental breakfast; hot-air balloon rides (weather permitting); a chance to win fabulous awards & prizes; and a race t-shirt for each paid 5K entry.

You are also invited to stay and play the Family Games at Fontanel immediately following the 5k awards ceremony. It's great fun and an excellent value for the whole family!

But whether you come just come for the 5k... or stay for the games... or BOTH... you will have a great time! It's two separate – yet great events – both on one memorable morning!

So get your game on, register today and join us to celebrate fatherhood and family while helping to raise support for boys whose fathers are absent from their lives. You’ll have fun, you’ll make some great memories and most importantly, you’ll help make a difference!

(NOTE: Running strollers are NOT allowed in the 5k trail race due to the rough terrain and steep hills. However, they ARE allowed on the Fontanel grounds and during the Family Games).
