Please join us for the 10th Annual
Elizabeth’s Outrun Melanoma 5K Run and Walk

Get your family together, come out and run / walk in support of this great cause! 

Skin cancer is the most common cancer.  It affects men and women of all ages.  Melanoma causes the most skin cancer deaths.   As we gear up for summer when more people are likely to be exposed to the sun’s damaging UV rays, the 10th Annual Elizabeth’s Outrun Melanoma 5K and Walk is a perfect family activity to help raise awareness and support a great cause.  Our fundraising efforts are critical as the majority of services to be provided are not medically reimbursable and patients will not be charged.PARTICIPATION RATES: 
5K Run/Walk - $30 Pre-Registration // $35 Day of Event
1 Mile Fun Run - $25 Pre-Registration // $30 Day of Event

Parking & Directions to the Park:  There is on-going TDOT construction along Volkswagen Drive.  What was a roundabout outside the park entrance is now a 4-way intersection. There are many construction vehicles, cones, and blocked areas around Volkswagen Drive.


Parking in the Volkswagen Lot is available in rows 36 through 41 (see highlighted area in the image above). Volkswagen has their own event race day and needs the front half of the lot for their employees.  As you enter the parking lot you will see parking signage directing you towards our designated spaces.  

We will have two buses running from the VW lot to the Enterprise South Nature Park entrance and back.  Please ensure you allow time to take the shuttle to the park entrance.  It is quite a distance from our designated parking area to the park entrance, and many of the sidewalks are currently closed due to the construction.  TDOT has asked us to reiterate that the entire area is an active construction zone and to use our shuttles. Please do not walk along Volkswagen Drive, the sidewalks, or walk across the street to the path.

Directions to parking:
From I-75 take exit 9 to Volkswagen Drive and make a left to head across the freeway. At the intersection you will see the park on your right.  Make a LEFT TURN at the light and proceed going through the roundabout, then turn right at the next entrance into the parking lot.  Once you are in the lot, turn right at the stop sign and you will see signs for Elizabeth’s Out Run Melanoma parking; rows 36 through 41. 

From Bonny Oaks, take Volkswagen Drive; after going through the first roundabout, take the second left into the VW Lot. Once you are in the lot, turn right at the stop sign and you will see signs for Elizabeth’s Out Run Melanoma parking; rows 36 through 41. 


While we do love to see everyone's furry family members, for liability / insurance reasons we cannot allow pets at the race site.  We ask that pets be left safely at home and not brought to the race site.

Please do not park in any other lots around Volkswagen.
