Breakaway Running is one of the leading partners for the inaugural Great American River Run on May 28, 2016, which includes a Half Marathon and a 5k course throughout downtown Memphis. This running event is a great addition to one of the most favored events in the mid-south, the Memphis in May International Festival.

Runners get the ultimate running tour of downtown Memphis by running along the Mississippi River and rocking to the tunes of live entertainment. Participants will also be greeted at this post-race party with live music, food, and beverages on the river bluff. Plus, runners will receive a free entrance into a new Memphis Festivial, 901Fest, which will feature local musicians, food, artists, and more.

To celebrate the spirit of the Memorial Day weekend, the Great American River Run will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the cause and offering military discounts for all active duty and retired military personnel.
