Hillbilly Truck
Welcome to the 2018 Hillbilly Half Marathon, formerly known as the Franklin Half Marathon. This will be our fifth year running out in Leiper’s Fork, TN through the pristine, rolling hills of rural Williamson County.  This area is home to country music stars, movie stars, A-listers and moonshining hillbillies.  It is an eclectic mix of colorful people and you will quickly see why.

This race has been recognized as one of the most difficult, yet scenic half marathons in the southeast.  The heat, humidity and hills will challenge all athletes, but in the end, you will be proud of your accomplishment.  There will be motivation and possibly some heckling along the course, but it is all in good fun.
