Tennessee Children’s Home is having Spring Hill’s first Half Marathon on November 25, 2017. We are very excited to fill a community need and fund-raise. We will also have a 5K and a Fun Run for the kiddos.
Come enjoy a beautiful run through the fastest growing city in Tennessee and the most scenic and historical spots. Run with Sonic the Milk Shake – the energy is infectious!
The Spring Hill Turkey Burn course will be highlighted as one of the city’s biggest attractions. We hold our races to the highest quality standards, from start to finish, course design and accuracy, emergency medical plans that exceed industry standards all in the name of your safety. Please note that although we’ll try our best to avoid it, the course and start time is subject to change.

The money raised will support the Middle Tennessee campus of Tennessee Children’s Home and the programs provided. Children and youth, who otherwise would not have opportunities to learn about Christ, have educational services and physical necessaries, count on people like you to help provide this safe and secure environment.
We hope that you will consider making an impact in this way, and that you understand how life changing your gift will be for children and youth who will be given opportunities because of your donation.
*Please note that a 15 minute mile pace or faster is required for both the 5k and 21k race distances. A 15 min. mile pace is roughly four miles per hour, equivalent to a very brisk walk. If you fall below this pace, the race organizers can no longer guarantee course support. Aid Stations, medical support, portable toilets, and road closures will begin to become unavailable to participants. The local police and race organizers will ask you to reroute to a shorter version of the course, or move up onto the sidewalk where you will be required to obey regular traffic laws.
