Friday Five: Top 5 Places to Run Near Vanderbilt

1. Belmont + 12 South loop
-probably our most popular run

2. Capitol Hill and Downtown Bridges
-the capital mall is beautiful this time of year and there are 3 bridges spanning the Cumberland with great views

3. McCabe Park
-easy 2.8-mile loop with a nice golf course in the middle

4. Shelby Bottoms/East Nashville
-Shelby Bottoms is a perfectly flat 8-mile loop; run north into east Nashville for lots of hills

5. Centennial Park + Vanderbilt Campus Loop
-Vanderbilt circumference is around 3 miles and Centennial is exactly a 1 mile loop; perfect for training

Bonus: 440 Greenway
-nice new paved trail; connects Elmington Park with Centennial Dog Park; best kept secret (shhh!)
