Shelby Farms Greenline has re-energized our community, connected neighborhoods and become one of Memphis' most loved amenities, and the Greenline Half Marathon, presented by Christian Brothers University, is one of the biggest annual fundraisers for the trail.

Shelby Farms Greenline is managed and operated by Shelby Farms Park Conservancy (SFPC). SFPC is a 501(c) nonprofit organization that works to keep Shelby Farms Park + Shelby Farms Greenline clean, green and safe. Your registration fee helps maintain the trail you love.

In 2012, the Council for Responsible Sport certified the Greenline Half Marathon as the first sustainable sporting event in Tennessee.

Our goal: lower the carbon footprint to Shelby Farms Park and the city of Memphis through this running event

Our Impact: continue to be known as a leader in green sustainable practice encouraging others to adopt our environmental safeguards

In honor of the Greenline's  fourth anniversary, each participant will receive:
  • A commemorative buffalo medal made from recycled materials (unless you choose to opt out)
  • A recycled t-shirt. Our shirts run small. Please order accordingly - we cannot trade shirts.
  • Free entry to post-race party featuring lunch by Moe's Southwest Grill + Humdinger's, and live music by Ghost Town Blues Band.
