Brief Overview

The Raccoon Mountain Road Races are certified 5k and 10k races sponsored by the Chattanooga Track Club, taking place at one of the most scenic, quiet, and peaceful race courses in the region. The course is entirely on roads within the TVA reserve, meaning vehicular traffic will be minimal. Most of the race circles a 528 acre lake, with a portion of the race run on the largest rock fill dam ever built by TVA, 8500 feet long and 230 feet high. From the dam, spectacular views of the Tennessee River Gorge toward the west and Lookout Mountain toward the south make this race unique.


Both races start at 8:30AM Eastern Daylight Time. Since all vehicles must travel over the race course to reach parking at the start / finish line, all spectators and pre-registered runners should be parked at Laurel Point no later than 8:10AM, and race-day registrants should arrive earlier. For the safety and enjoyment of participants and volunteers, we cannot allow vehicles to travel on the course to and from the start/finish line between 8:15 AM and 9:00 AM EDT.
