For Immediate Release

The 2015 running of the Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon will be held on Saturday, November 14 with the marathon and accompanying half-marathon both starting at 7:30 from 6 Barnhardt Circle next to the gazebo.

This race, being held at the battlefield for the 36th straight year, is a double loop through the park with a few rolling hills along the way. Not considered a difficult course, it’s a great place for personal records and Boston qualifying times.

In addition to the two longer races, there will also be a 5K and a Junior Marathon, which is a one-mile run for younger runners.

Registration is still open for all events by going to www.active.com. Fees for the two longer races are $90 while the 5K costs $35 and the junior marathon $10. There will be race-day registration for those two shorter events, but not the longer two.

Military persons, law enforcement officers and emergency responders may enter the longer races at a discounted rate of $70 and $25 for the 5K.

Pre-race packet pickup will be held on Friday from 4-8 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Fort Oglethorpe, located at 2645 Lafayette Road and that’s also the location for the pasta dinner, which is open to adults for $15 and children for $8

.


Volunteer positions are still available for anyone who wants to support the event, but just doesn’t choose to run. Contact Sherilyn Johnson at marathon@chattanoogatrackclub.org for more details.
