About the event
Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage and Fleet Feet Mt. Juliet are proud to announce the 2nd annual 7th President 7k, a unique course set on the property that the nation’s 7th president once called home. The 7k will take runners across paved pathways and fields as they take in the rolling hills and beautiful landscape of The Hermitage property. Runners will get the chance to see Tulip Grove mansion, the home of Rachel Jackson’s nephew, as well as the Hermitage Church, completed in 1824 as a place for the neighborhood to worship. The race will end at the Hermitage mansion, the crown jewel of the property.
New for 2023: A 2-mile walking course has been added, perfect for those who want to see this beautiful, historic property.
