About This Activity

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. Do not run this race unless you have trained on trails.

Cost: $15. The race entry fee includes admission to the Chattanooga Arboretum & Nature Center. Runners may register online at Active.com through Dec. 12th. Race day registration opens at 8:00 am This is and age/sex 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 10:10:15. If you want to run with a friend you may start later than your assigned time but not earlier. 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). Team members must have one of the following relationship to each other: spouses, parent-child, grandparent-grandchild, sibling, or aunt/uncle with niece/nephew. Runners are invited to bring goodies to share at the post-race feeding frenzy - no alcohol allowed. The race site is a nature preserve - no pets are allowed.
