- There will be bathrooms at Outdoor Chattanooga. There are NOT bathrooms at the start/finish area, and there are NOT bathrooms on the course. Please plan to make a stop before you head over to the start line.

- Since the race is only 2 miles and we wish to keep our impact on the Heritage Landing neighborhood to a minimum, there will NOT be a water station on the course. There will be water at the start/finish line as well as at Outdoor Chattanooga. Please do NOT leave anything on the course in Heritage Landing. If you require gels/water along the way, please carry all trash out with you. We are very grateful to Heritage Landing for use of their neighborhood and wish to leave it in sparkling condition. ?
