Murfreesboro Half Marathon and Murph's Fun Run
Oct 13 2012
Murfreesboro Half Marathon
The 13.1 mile course has you running up and down tree-lined Main Street, past historic Oaklands Mansion, and circling the Downtown Square.
After passing Middle Tennessee State University's Fraternity Row and the official geographic center of Tennessee, you'll finish the race in style at MTSU's Track and Soccer Stadium.
Why is it called "The Middle Half?"
First of all, it takes place in Middle Tennessee, with the race passing by the geographic center of the state. The presenting sponsor is Middle Tennessee Medical Center. And the athletes start and finish at Middle Tennessee State University.
Best of all, the person crossing the finish line in the middle of the pack receives an award, "The DNJ Middle Medal." And it's just fun to say!
