The course is a hilly 6.7 miles of gravel/dirt roads and rough double track trails on the lower slopes of Lookout Mountain. The elevation change between the low point (the start/finish) and the high point of the course is 410 feet.  This race involves steep up and down on trails covered with leaves, rocks, and tree limbs.

***The Wauhatchie Trail Race is and age/gender handicapped race.*** 
Males 25-29 are considered the fastest group and start at time zero. All other groups receive a head-start. Females 80 and over start at 9:30 am and males 25-29 start at 10:15. If you want to run with a friend you may start later than your assigned time but not earlier.

Event details and schedule The race entry fee includes admission to Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center. Runners may register online at RACECTC.ORG. Cost is $10.00 through 5:00 pm February 2nd. Race day registration opens at 8:00 am ($15.00 on race day).     

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 and the top two-person family team will be awarded the coveted Golden Antlers trophy.

The team award is based on the combined finishing times of both runners (including handicap).
