NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Tens of thousands of runners would have been lined up on Broadway to run in the annual Rock and Roll Marathon, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, not this April. The race has been postponed. ‬

‪Despite the postponement, plenty of runners aren’t letting their training go waste. Groups with Fleet Feet will be doing a virtual run April 25.

Run organizers have created turn-by-turn directions for those to participate in the half-marathon.

Anyone participating in the run is encouraged to continue practicing social distancing, wearing a face mask while out and continuing to thoroughly wash hands.

‪You can sign up for the 13.1-mile run on Facebook.

Runners can also sign up for the Rock 'n' Roll Running Club. On the Running Club app, you can log miles, track your training and earn virtual prizes for your progress.
