Many other fun runs start in Belle Meade. Presently, none are scheduled, but you can find many other runners here. At the end of Belle Meade Boulevard, look for the stone gates (see photo below). Park on the park side of the gates. You can run in the park, where there are 3, 6 and 11 mile loops. Very scenic but very hilly. Alternatively, you can run down Belle Meade Boulevard. It is gently rolling, and approximately 3 miles to Harding Road. You must run against traffic along the median, single file. The Belle Meade police have been known to ticket offenders!
