Come out and run the 44th annual Overton Park 5 Mile Classic, Memphis’ oldest footrace! This is just a really fun old school type race on a challenging course that runs on the roads, trails and grass. Through the years Memphis’ best as well as some of the world’s best runners including Olympian, 2X World Cross Country Champ, Craig Virgin and Canadian Olympian Paul Bannon have run the Classic. Proceeds will go to Park Friends, HBC Trailworks and the Overton Park Conservancy to help maintain the park and trails we love.

The start and finish will be near the East Parkway Pavilion. Parking is available there as well as across East Parkway. Race Day Registration will be at the Pavilion beginning at 5:45 a.m.

Due to the nature of the course ear buds and baby strollers are not allowed.

Register online or at either Breakaway Running store. T-shirts can be picked up race day morning. There is no pre-race packet pick-up.

Train Hard, Run Fast!
