NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The Second Annual Titans Back to Football Run is set to take place on Saturday, August 10.

The 5K Run unites both runners and Titans fans, and encourages participants of all abilities to help kick off the 2013 Titans season.

Runners will start and finish right in the middle of the Titans stadium.

"The fans are always cheering for us when we are on the field and now we as players and as an organization have an opportunity to cheer for our fans.  Here to see them start the race as well as to finish it and what better place to finish the race than here at the 50 yard line," said Titans Safety, George Wilson.

People of all ages are encouraged to join the event. A half mile "fun run" for kids is also part of the fun-filled day. 

"They'll run a 5k course downtown, then end running through the tunnel on the field and end up on the 50-yard line," said Titans Executive Vice President, Don MacLachlan.,

Several Titans players were promoting the event on Sunday, which benefits ‘Girls on the Run', a local running group geared towards young girls.

"A wonderful organization that encourages girls to be physically active but also talks about healthy living and self-esteem so it's a wonderful thing the Titans are doing," said Mayor Karl Dean.
