What’s better than running by yourself? Running with a bunch of crazy fun people, that’s what! Spend your Saturday morning and Sunday morning running or walking along the beautiful Tennessee River, with a bunch of the funnest runners you’ve ever met.
The course is basically completely flat, on a paved path that meanders by the Chickamauga Dam, behind the campus of Chattanooga State, and alongside the Tennessee River, passing playgrounds and restrooms with toilets that flush. The new kids race covers 1/4 of a mile, around the grassy area by the start/finish line.
Yep, you read that right, toilets that flush and sinks with running water and soap. Is this a runner’s dream or what?
You will pass the start/finish/aid station area multiple times throughout the race. This means you’re welcome to leave a drop bag to access your own personal goodies and you can shed layers as you warm up. This is also a good place to reapply sunscreen, address any potential issues such as blisters, etc.
Both races are super low-key and non-competitive; we’d prefer to race you vs. you, not you vs. anyone else. There is an 8 hour time limit for all distances.
Your registration fee includes entry into the race distance of your choosing, race swag, finisher medal for all distances, and our usual aid station setup including Gatorade, water, Gu, and snacks and post-race food.
Shirts are NOT included in your race fee. We do give out race swag, it just won’t be a shirt! As is tradition with this race, shirts, tank tops, hoodies, and other swag will be available for purchase on race day.
We accept donations of old shoes to be given to the homeless via the Community Kitchen at this race, and have proudly donated over 1,000 pairs of shoes over the years!
As with any other race put on by any other company, registration fees and add-on fees are final and are not refundable or transferable for any reason. Prices are subject to change. The races will go on rain, snow, or shine.
If you will be running BOTH days, please use code BOTH to get $10 off your second day’s registration. You’ll only get one set of race swag items, as if you were running one race, but you’ll get different medals for each day’s race and a third medal for doing both! You can mix and match race distances using this option.
