Nashville's rolling terrain provides Vanderbilt runners with many scenic but challenging training venues.

Centennial Park
The 132-acre park (pictured above) is located just one block from campus and is home to the Parthenon.

Vaughn's Gap
Vaughn's Gap, in Nashville's Percy Warner Park, is the team's home site for the Commodore Classic and Belmont-VU Opener every fall. The well-maintained, running-only route measures 5K for women and 8K for men. The course hosted the 1999 SEC Championships and will host the league championships again in 2012.

The course is on of the most scenic and challenging in the Southeast and features beautiful woodlands and more than 10 miles of picturesque running trails located just 15 minutes from campus.
