Where Every Family Matters

Murfreesboro Holds 100-Mile Greenway Challenge

Will you accept the challenge? Get out those strollers and sneakers, Murfreesboro parents!

With over 17-miles of trails and walkways, the Murfreesboro Greenway 100 can be an enjoyable way for families and friends to conquer that word so many dread … exercise. 

Happening from April 15 to May 15, all participants will receive a t-shirt and sticker. You can tackle 100 miles by walking, jogging, running, bicycling or even skating the trek.

If you utilize every section of the entire Greenway 5.7-times, that would add up to 100-miles.

About the Murfreesboro Greenway

There are sixteen trailheads along the seven greenway sections that all provide access for hiking, walking, running, wading, bicycling, skating, nature photography, picnicking, birdwatching, fishing and many other outdoor activities for individuals of all abilities. If you want paddle or wade alongside the Greenway, there are three small watercraft launch points — two on the West Fork of the Stones River and one on the East Fork of the Stones River.

The Murfreesboro Greenway System also connects historical sites, parks, neighborhoods and businesses and serves as a conservation corridor to preserve precious natural and cultural resources.
