Brief Overview

Join us on Saturday, August 6, 2016 for the 44th annual Missionary Ridge Road Race! This is a scenic, 4.7 mile out & back course atop beautiful Missionary Ridge.  There is also a 1 mile fun run/walk - so be sure to bring the family! 

Missionary Ridge is one of Chattanooga's most historic and beautiful residential neighborhoods. Many of the majestic homes date back more than 100 years. Site of a significant Civil War battlefield, "The Battle of Missionary Ridge" took place here on November 25, 1863. Throughout the race course you will see Civil War cannons, granite monuments, bronze plaques and sculptures along with sweeping views of Lookout Mountain and the Chattanooga skyline. 

Both events start and finish at Bragg Reservation and will benefit the local chapter of American Red Cross and Team Bruner Scholarships!
