Start/Finish on Laurel Point on Raccoon Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee
We will be using only the trails that connect to Laurel Point. There will be some short road sections. The loops for most of the races will be roughly 4.5 miles long We’ll have an out-and-back section marked for each distance to get you to the appropriate mileage.
The trail is technical in that there are roots and rocks, but it’s not particularly difficult. There are no water crossings. Trail shoes are useful, but not necessary. Beginners, hikers, children of all ages are welcome. There is an eight hour time limit for all distances (afternoon half time limit is four hours.) You must be out on your last lap by 3:45pm. We don’t DNF; we’ll give you a finish time for the distance you did complete.
