RUN THE RACE THAT RUNS the GREENLINE!
The 6th annual Greenline Half Marathon is the biggest annual fundraiser for Shelby Farms Greenline, a 10+ mile cycling and pedestrian trail that connects the community from Cordova to the heart of Memphis, to Shelby Farms Park and to each other. The best part? This race is the greenest race in the state, as certified by the Council for Responsible Sport! You can learn more about our sustainability practices below.
