United Cerebral Palsy and The Nashville Striders announce the sixth annual Resolution Run, slated for a start time of 10:00 a.m. on January 1st, 2009. Race day registration and packet pickup begins at 8:30 a.m. at the Hall of Fame Park across from the Sommet Center. Over 1000 participants are expected in this year’s event. This is the first race of the Nashville Striders Grand Prix Series.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Durable Medical and Adaptive Equipment Exchange Program at UCP.

Organizers are bringing back many of the activities that have made this event a New Year’s Day tradition for serious runners and fun-seekers, as well. These include door prizes, medals to winners in all age categories, and a traditional New Year’s Day meal of black-eyed peas and cornbread provided by the Hermitage Hotel after the race. Awards are three deep in 5-year age categories, men’s and women’s. Also included are plaques for overall, master’s, grandmasters, senior grandmasters and wheelchair division winners. This is a sanctioned Corporate Challenge event, with medals and plaques for corporate teams, as well.

The Resolution Run is one of the most scenic 5K races in the Nashville area. The certified 5k (3.1 mile) course starts on Demonbreun Street across from the Country Music Hall of Fame and proceeds across the Cumberland River. Runners loop around a portion of the Coliseum on Titans Way and Victory Avenue before, once again, crossing the Cumberland River via the Pedestrian Bridge.

Preregistration is $20 for individuals and $50 for families up to three people. All pre-registered participants are guaranteed a t-shirt. To register online go to www.RunNashville.org
Race Day Registration is $25 for individuals and $65 for families.

Proceeds from the Resolution Run are used to provide direct services to individuals with all types of disabilities throughout Tennessee. For more information, call United Cerebral Palsy at 615-242-4091.
