2018 2.5k/5k Run



Story and photography by Eric Lusk

The Try Boro Kids Races Series is a non-profit organization that puts on unique endurance events to help get kids active. Founded in 2009 with one triathlon, the original event was hosted by Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation and their SportsCom facility.

That first year saw 175 kids swim, bike, and run and since then the series has hosted 17 events. For the past 4 years, the series has hosted a 2.5K/5K Run in May, a triathlon in August, and a trail run in October. The Try Boro 2.5K/5K Run was held this past May 11th with nearly 200 kids and many adults joining in the fun!

Luckily for us, Murfreesboro is blessed with one of the finest Farmer’s Markets in the state where we can do just that! Nothing screams summer better than a homecooked meal of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally grown and sold. Read More
  • Garage Barre + Bike

    You may have noticed the corner of Church St and Vine St on Murfreesboro’s downtown square looks a little different. What once was an empty building with a black coat of paint now features a pink-and-white striped wall (that you’ve probably seen photographed on social media.)
