Brief Overview

Join us for a new running concept…the Salomon CITYTRAIL race–a hybrid trail and road running event.

The Salomon CityTrail race will undoubtedly go down as an “urban epic” running experience. This course will not only test you with the fitness challenges that you would expect from Wild Trails, but you will also get an inside look at some of our city’s historic features. Let’s take a look: The race starts and finishes at the stunning Renaissance Park bordering the Tennessee River in downtown Chattanooga. Both the 10K and the 30K races start at the same time but head off in different directions right from the start.

30k Course Description
The 30K course takes you over the longest pedestrian bridge in the country before looping you around and through no less than 18 classic Chattanooga landmarks including, Ross’s Landing and the 21st Century Waterfront and it’s rather large fountains, our Urban Art park, the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo, Chattanooga’s National Cemetery, the Zoo, running the stairs of our historic Engel stadium where Babe Ruth played, followed by more alleys as you continue on to UTC’s campus (Cardiac Hill included). The River Walk follows and leads you back to the Tennessee River and the Museum district, around the infield of the At&T stadium. You’ll then cross the Market Street and then you will be treated by the same loop through Stringers Ridge. So for a bit over 18 miles this course doesn’t just run next to, but through at least 18 iconic landmarks in Chattanooga, all while keeping off the roads ensuring this race will be an instant classic course in the Salomon CityTrail series. Don’t miss it.

10k Course Description
The 10K course winds through a short commercial section before heading through some residential streets for a mile or so before heading onto single track nature trail in the nationally acclaimed Stringers Ridge Nature Park. 3+ miles on some of the most amazing trails around leads you to another mile of residential roads before making a spectacular loop around Renaissance park to the finish.
