Stanky Creek 50K/Marathon/25K/Half Marathon
15 September 2019
A NAME CHANGE! The super Stanky Creek distance running event has changed names to the Nesbit Park Trails Classic. The inaugural Nesbit Park Trails Classic is set for September 15, 2019. A 10K is being added to the event. There is only one difference in the trail loop for the race entrants.
The 50K/25K runners will run the blue trail loop as part of the course, and the marathon and half marathon runners will not run the blue trail loop to complete their race. Since the marathon/half marathon loop is 6.56 miles, the 10K race will run 95% of the marathon/half loop to complete the 10K (6.21 miles). The 50K and marathon will start at 7:00 AM, the 25K and half marathon races start at 7:30 AM, and the 10K will start at 7:45 AM. These races take place at Nesbit Park, commonly called Stanky Creek by the local Memphis area runners and cyclists, located at 5760 Yale Rd Bartlett, TN 38134.
There are about 70 parking spaces in the Nesbit Park parking lot. Additional parking is on the street (Yale Rd) between the curb and the bike line on both sides of the road. Please note that parking is not allowed between the curb and bike lane in areas marked by diagonal white lines which are the areas immediately before and after the Nesbit Park parking lot entrance and around road intersections in the Nesbit Park area. A satellite view of the Nesbit Park parking lot and a portion of Yale Road can be seen here.
