This course has some rolling hills that will take you around Mt. Juliet with some beautiful scenery. Spectators will thoroughly enjoy this half, since they will be able to watch the entire Christmas Parade while waiting for the runners to finish.
Participants will receive a long sleeve shirt, a delicious post race meal, and great finisher medals for both race distances.
Christmas with a Cop will serve as our charity partner for the 5th year. The Mt. Juliet Police Department is sponsoring less-fortunate children to take Christmas shopping this holiday season in its Christmas With a Cop program. This is the 14th year for the Christmas With a Cop program. An increasing number of families in our community are in great need throughout the year, but with the Christmas season approaching, that need is more difficult to face. The Mt. Juliet Police Christmas With A Cop program focuses on assisting families in need for the holidays by inviting children and families in the community to shop with a Mt. Juliet Police Officer for gifts for themselves and loved ones. For one night, children and families are given undivided positive attention, making them feel special in a way many of them have not previously experienced. The program is funded through donations from local businesses and community members, as well as funds from the Mt. Juliet Police Department. A portion of your entry fee will go towards this special program.
