Description

Join us for year FIVE, where the funnest runners in the world converge on Raccoon Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Race options include:
– 10K (all road)
– Morning half marathon (all road course, all trail course, or the original part road/part trail course)
– Afternoon half marathon (original part road/part trail course)
– Double half marathon challenge (one half marathon in the morning, one in the afternoon)
– Marathon
– Relay (Half marathon or marathon distance)

We suggest you do NOT sign up for this race if you are super serious, if you are super competitive, if you are super uptight and expect a slick, corporate, city-type race. That’s just not how we roll.

We suggest you DO sign up for this race if you like low key and laid back, focused on fun, support for all speeds, and/or aid station buffet-type situations.

For info about the race itself, visit www.runchattanooga.org/rmm/ BEFORE you register so you know what you’re getting into, and make sure to like us on Facebook for updates! Also, visit runawesomesauce.com for information about our other races!

There is a nine hour time limit, which means we’re obviously more than walker-friendly; we LOVE walkers. This is a great place to take on your first trail race!

Oak Barrel Half @ Lynchburg TN
Apr 6 @ 8:00 am – 1:30 pm
Oak Barrel Half @ Lynchburg TN

The WRH annual picnic will follow this again this year. Join us.

 

The course starts just off the square in Lynchburg, Tennessee and winds through rural Moore County Tennessee and passes the Jack Daniel’s Distillery.  The course finishes the 13.1 mile loop on the Lynchburg  town square.

Lynchburg sits at the low point of a beautiful, picturesque valley, and because of this, the race course does include a few hills. Since start and finish locations of the race are essentially at the same elevation, any hills that you get to climb, you also get to descend.

If you are looking for an address to plug into a map program or GPS for directions for the race start, use:  196 Main Street, Lynchburg, TN 37352 (35.282622,-86.373524).

Parking for the race will be in Wiseman Park which is just behind the Moore County square.  A parking map will be posted soon.

Understand, that because Lynchburg sits in a valley, the race course incorporates a few hills.  The scenic beauty of Moore County; however, will far outweigh any of the challenges presented by the hills.  This will NOT be a “flat and fast” personal record setting course but hopefully will be a fun and memorable race.

A link to the course map can be found on MapMyRun.  As promised the course includes a few hills.  Most of the altitude required to get up on the ridge above town is gained in a little over a mile.  In addition to that one major hill, the course includes few rolling hills but none that are significant.  After mile 9, the course is either a shallow downhill grade or flat to the finish line.

Things to know about the course

  • This is NOT a flat course
  • There is one character building hill (Whiskey Hill) that starts at about mile 4.
  • Whiskey Hill is a gradual climb for about a mile.  The last little bit of it however gets very steep.  The steep part is very short.
  • There is one other hill that is very short.
  • There is a gradual downhill section that runs from about mile 9 to 12.
  • The last mile is flat.

Tri for Ole Glory
Jul 4 @ 7:00 am – 10:30 am
Tri for Ole Glory

Team Rocket Tri Club has partnered with the U.S. Space and Rocket Center to produce a reverse order Off Road Triathlon to showcase the property surrounding the USSRC and The Huntsville Botanical Garden. Huntsville’s growing need for a family friendly mountain bike/running trail located near UAH and close to town, makes this a perfect venue. This annual event will provide charitable funds for the U.S. Space and Rocket Center Space Camp Scholarship Fund.

Course Description

As a reverse order Sprint Distance Triathlon, this fun race begins with a 3.1 mile run that is on a mix of dirt, gravel and pavement surfaces. Racers will transition to an 8 mile mountain bike course that slips through a wide variety of hardwoods, cedar and pine groves. You will get to see numerous airplanes, rockets and space equipment as you wind though a course that looks flat but will fool you with climbs and twists, creek crossings and jumps. Finally racers will be able to cool off with a 200 meter swim in the Aviation Challege swim area. Never deeper than 4 feet, tired swimmers have the ability to stand up and catch their breath if needed. This swim venue is considered beginner friendly. Awards will follow the race in the shade of the covered pavilion, affectionally known as the Bubble at the USSRC.

Description

What’s better than running by yourself? Running with a bunch of crazy fun people, that’s what! Spend your Saturday morning and Sunday morning running or walking along the beautiful Tennessee River, with a bunch of the funnest runners you’ve ever met.

The course is basically completely flat, on a paved path that meanders by the Chickamauga Dam, behind the campus of Chattanooga State, and alongside the Tennessee River, passing playgrounds and restrooms with toilets that flush. The new kids race covers 1/4 of a mile, around the grassy area by the start/finish line.

Yep, you read that right, toilets that flush and sinks with running water and soap. Is this a runner’s dream or what?

You will pass the start/finish/aid station area multiple times throughout the race. This means you’re welcome to leave a drop bag to access your own personal goodies and you can shed layers as you warm up. This is also a good place to reapply sunscreen, address any potential issues such as blisters, etc.

Both races are super low-key and non-competitive; we’d prefer to race you vs. you, not you vs. anyone else. There is an 8 hour time limit for all distances.

Your registration fee includes entry into the race distance of your choosing, race swag, finisher medal for all distances, and our usual aid station setup including Gatorade, water, Gu, and snacks and post-race food.

Shirts are NOT included in your race fee. We do give out race swag, it just won’t be a shirt! As is tradition with this race, shirts, tank tops, hoodies, and other swag will be available for purchase on race day.

We accept donations of old shoes to be given to the homeless via the Community Kitchen at this race, and have proudly donated over 1,000 pairs of shoes over the years!

As with any other race put on by any other company, registration fees and add-on fees are final and are not refundable or transferable for any reason. Prices are subject to change. The races will go on rain, snow, or shine.

If you will be running BOTH days, please use code BOTH to get $10 off your second day’s registration. You’ll only get one set of race swag items, as if you were running one race, but you’ll get different medals for each day’s race and a third medal for doing both! You can mix and match race distances using this option.

This is a great race for your 1st open water swim!

Located at 4701 Slalom Run in Owens Cross Roads, AL, the Racing Rivals Triathlon is a sprint distance tri that raises funds for college scholarships. The event is hosted by the Huntsville-area alumni chapters of Auburn University, Mississippi State University and the University of Alabama. The funds raised by this event will be split by the chapters based on the affiliation designated by each race participant during registration. In addition to the exciting individual competition, there will be a “rivalry” competition between the fans of each school and the winning chapter will the awarded a grand trophy and bragging rights for the next year. This will be an exciting competitive atmosphere with the thrill of the race and the anticipation of being on the eve of football season! The race will originate from Clearwater Lake in Owens Cross Roads, a beautiful private lake nestled in the valley just east of Green Mountain. The lake was designed and is used primarily for competitive water skiing. The very clear water and relatively shallow depths allow for excellent conditions for the swim portion of the competition.
