2007 Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon
Scheduled for November 18th
At 7am on November 18, 2007, Nashville's Percy Warner Park will host
one of the most challenging road marathons in the country, The Harpeth
Hills Flying Monkey Marathon.
Last Autumn, a foolish group of runners inaugurated a new marathon on
a steely gray and icy morning in November. Only 96 runners had the
courage and stamina to brave the hills and make it to the finish line.
Among the finishers, four clocked times under three hours, an
unexpected feat for this course. Flying monkey attacks were rare,
enthusiasm was abundant and the race a success. Race reviews spoke to
its uniqueness and beauty, its difficulty and excellent runner
support. Many said that they would return.
So, this November, we will repeat the madness and race the second
Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon. We have expanded the field to
200 and expect runners to come from all over the country, and perhaps
beyond. Runners are expected to represent a diverse set of abilities
and interests, from some of the fastest in the region to those who
steadily log marathon after marathon to accumulate a resume of
hundreds. For others, this will be their first marathon.
