The 7th annual Greenline Half Marathon is the largest 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. This year, the race will feature a new 5K in addition to the half marathon! 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.

Ready for 13.1 or 3.1 miles of good, green fun? Register here! (Early bird rates are available through August 13, 2017!)

Shelby Farms Greenline is managed and operated by Shelby Farms Park Conservancy, the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that also manages Shelby Farms Park. Proceeds from the Greenline Half Marathon + 5K help keep the trail clean, green and safe year round.
