Thousands Run in Hard Rock Half Marathon

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Thousands of runners came out to hit the streets of downtown Nashville. It was all part of the fourth annual Hard Rock Half Marathon.  The event pulled in 2,500 runners from all across the country.

"It's motivating; it makes you feel awesome, and running is like a whole other high. It's a blast," said participant Jessica Chupp.

Of course, the run wasn't just about having fun; it also benefits a great cause.  Organizers hosted a bone marrow registry drive, and so far, more than 500 people have signed up over the past four years.

The Hard Rock Half Marathon is the last major run in Nashville for the year. The season kicks off with the Music City Marathon in April.
