Presented by Friends of Shelby Parks and Bottoms at Shelby Park, Riverview Shelter, Nashville TN

Sep 18 2022
5th Annual Golden Pheasant Triathlon

This kayak, bike, and run triathlon celebrates the mysterious golden pheasant that once inhabited Shelby Bottoms. A non-competitive race, participants will kayak two miles on the Cumberland River, bike 8 miles on the Shelby Park greenway, and run a 3 mile loop around the park.
Proceeds benefit Friends of Shelby Park and Bottoms and Walk Bike Nashville, and there will be prizes for best costume. Don’t have your own kayak? No sweat – just add on a single or tandem kayak rental from Cumberland Kayak. Participants will receive a Golden Pheasant shirt!
