Tennessee Children’s Home is having Spring Hill’s 3rd Annual Turkey Burn Half Marathon on November 30, 2019. We are very excited to fill a community need and fund-raise. We will also have a 5K and a Fun Run for the kiddos. Come run the 5K with Sonic the Milk Shake and Tater Tot – the energy is infectious! The course will be multi-surface, gravel, asphalt, and cement.
Come enjoy a beautiful run through non-congested General Motors property. The run begins at the city of Spring Hill’s Northfield and follows along Donald F Ephlin Parkway with some up and backs. Enjoy a close-up view of historical Haynes Haven. Another change this year is Nashville Striders will be our race management team. Tennessee Children’s Home is looking forward to growing relationship and event.
The Spring Hill Turkey Burn course is developing into one of the city’s biggest attractions.
We do our best to hold our races to the highest quality standards, from start to finish, course design, accuracy, barriers, water stations and running course will be intently laid out for your safety. Safety is our main concern.
Please note that although we’ll try our best to avoid it, the course and start time is subject to change.

The local police and race organizers will ask you to reroute to a shorter version of the course, or move up onto the sidewalk where you will be required to obey regular traffic laws.
