Race Application


Brief Overview

A 6.7 mile trail run through the Chattanooga Nature Center and Reflection Riding. The race features an age/sex handicapped start. Males 25 - 29 are considered the fastest group and start at time “zero.” All other groups receive a head-start. Females 70 and over start at 9:45 am and males 25 - 29 start at 10:17:45. If you want to run with a friend you may start later than your assigned time but not earlier.


Awards Info

In keeping with the location of the race this will be a recycling event. Everyone will be a winner if you bring one prize (running or non-running related) for the prize table. Dig into your closet to find that long-lost treasure that you know a fellow-finisher will cherish. The overall champion will be recognized with a special award. An award will also be given to the top two-person family team. The award is based on the combined finishing times of both runners (including handicap). Team members must have one of the following relationship to each other: spouses, parent-child, grandparent-grandchild, sibling, or aunt/uncle with niece/nephew.

This race involves steep up-hills and down-hills on trails covered with leaves, rocks and tree limbs. Do not run this race unless you have trained on trails and you are comfortable running on them.
