For more than 40 years, the Queen City Road has been the premier running event in Clarksville.
This year's event is going to be bigger and better than ever! With brand new courses that are all flat and fast, whether you're an experienced runner looking for speed or someone looking to join in on the fun at your own pace, the 2021 Queen City Road Race has something for you!
All three courses this year are certified with USA Track & Field. The purpose of the USATF course certification program is to produce road race courses of accurately measured distances. For any road running performance to be accepted as a record or be nationally ranked, it must be run on a USATF-certified course.
