  • 1500m (3:48.25/4:27.00)
  • Mile (4:02.50 – Only 1 heat)

  • 5000m (14:23.00/17:10.00)

At this point we are unsure of the total number of participants we will be allowed to take part and are focusing on the above races. We will assess, in the coming weeks, if we are in a position to add  the “open” events that are usually part of the MCDC program.

Music City Distance Carnival

The Music City Distance Carnival is the most exciting running event in Tennessee. This is the 18th year and we are happy to be able to bring you a meet despite the challenges presented by Covid-19. We expect to have very strong pro fields (with several Olympians and U.S Champions already committed), a top-notch High School 3200m race, and a high quality Masters Mile Race. We are reviewing the possibility of adding some “Open" races. Unfortunately, this year the meet will be spectator-free except, but will be streamed live on a platform yet to be confirmed.
