This is a Run/Walk 5k that will run down Tullahoma’s well-known Jackson and Atlantic Streets. That’s right! We are closing part of the roads and rolling out the red carpet for you to run with your friends on the streets of Tullahoma. You will be able to catch a glance at many historic sites and sounds in a new and unique way.
The Downtown Tullahoma area will be highlighted at the start and finish of the race along with other locations like the Tullahoma Fine Arts Center, South Jackson Civic Center, multiple historic downtown churches, City Hall, and more along the course. Additionally, runners will get the opportunity to run down Atlantic Street which has been dubbed one of the widest streets in America and runs along the railroad tracks and along many historic sites in Tullahoma. One key site is History Park (103 NE Atlantic) which was the location of the original Tullahoma depot until World War II. A 1964 L&N Caboose purchased from the Tennessee Central Railway Museum by the Tullahoma Historic Preservation Society in 2000 now marks the location. The caboose typifies the important part the railroad has played in the history of Tullahoma. It was responsible for the city’s location in 1852 about midway between Nashville and Chattanooga and made Tullahoma an important railroad terminal.
