We assume that you DMC readers are a healthy lot. We’ve seen you practicing your 16 ounce curls at Flying Saucer and toughening up your livers with shots of Fireball in the parking lots before Titans games, so we know that you’re not averse to a little exercise.
So if you’ve got 13.1 or 26.2 miles in you, we expect that at least some of you will be running in the Country Music Marathon tomorrow. After you’re through setting your new personal record and slapping that pretentious mileage sticker on your bumper, you’ll probably be looking for someplace to gloat a little bit and refill your fuel tank.
For the first time this year, you can celebrate at the Mad Dash River Bash at the new Bridge Building next to Shelby Street pedestrian bridge next to LP Field. Runners and their non-running friends can meet up after the exertion is done for a day’s fun with music fun and drinks. The event kicks of at 9:00 am and will run until the wee hours.
You can even find some discount tickets until midnight tonight here thanks to our friends at Groupon. Here are all the details:
Choose Between Two Options
- $12 for admission to the Mad Dash River Bash for two (a $25 value)

The party celebrates the end of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, and will be held on Saturday, April 28, from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. at the Bridge Building along the river in Cumberland Park.
Mad Dash River Bash
The inaugural Mad Dash River Bash awaits Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon runners at the finish line, where revelers of all stamina levels will already be partying along the river shores of Cumberland Park––a brand-new development that celebrated a ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier this month. As the marathon kicks off, the all-day jamboree rolls in a tide of tunes from local and national DJs, who traffic in top-40 hits, old-school classics, hip-hop, and other crowd-rousing jams. Attendees can replenish calories spent merrymaking at food trucks doling out street fare, and drink specials stave off both thirst and the temptation to do a mojito rain dance. A cash prize awaits the winner of the best marathon costume, and photo booths preserve fond memories by the strip.
