What's this? Running in a suit?

It’s not every day that you see runners dressed in business suits. But that’s what makes the Steps of Success 5K Nashville’s most unique run/family walk!

Join us on Saturday, Sept. 7, for the third annual event at Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Nature Park. In just 12 weeks we’ll be running and walking to help local youth get a few steps closer to their professional dreams.

This 5K was inspired by a local college student who (with no scholarship or personal transportation) walked three miles every day from his college campus to his internship. Dressed in a business suit and carrying his briefcase, he knew that every step he took was a step toward success. Today, as a successful member of Nashville’s business community, he founded this unique 5K to create scholarship opportunities for college students and support after school programs for inner city youth in Nashville.

Proceeds from this year’s race will benefit Youth Encouragement Services and The Fisk 50/50 Protégé Mentoring Program, two organizations that equip youth for successful careers.

So, we invite you to suit up and bring along your colleagues, boss, best friend, children, mother and father, cousins…(you get the point, bring everybody!) for the best 5K of the year. We’ll have food, a kid zone, group fitness challenges, family friendly entertainment and loads of fun!
