BE PART OF THE HALF MARATHON ON THE SHELBY FARMS GREENLINE
The Shelby Farms Greenline has re-energized our community, connected neighborhoods and become one of Memphis' most loved amenities. This half marathon is a benefit race supporting the trail.
The Shelby Farms Greenline is managed and operated by Shelby Farms Park Conservancy--a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Your registration fee helps maintain the trail you love.
Greenline 1/2 Marathon has received ReSport Certification with the Council for Responsible Sport as the first sustainable running event in Tennessee.
