The 7 Bridges Marathon will begin in Coolidge Park on the North Shore of Chattanooga. Crossing the Market Street Bridge, the race will lead runners on a scenic tour of downtown Chattanooga’s bridges and riverside neighborhoods.
The half marathon course (13.1 miles) will accompany the full marathon (26.2 miles) over three bridges, splitting off at the Chattanooga Food Bank on the Tennessee Riverwalk. While the half will return over the Walnut Street Bridge and finish in Coolidge Park, the full marathon will continue over three more bridges (the C.B. Robinson, Thrasher, and Riverpark Bridges, respectively) before returning downtown to cross Walnut for the Coolidge Park finish. Come on and race!
Course: A Point to Point Trail run starting in Heflin AL on the unmolested Pinhoti single track trail. Runners will make their way over the highest point in Alabama while navigation over rocks, through creeks and across beautiful ridge lines of the Talladega National Forest. The course will consist of 81 miles of single track, 17 miles of jeep road and 4 miles of pavement and will finish on the rubberized track in the Sylacauga High School Football Stadium.
We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
We are currently seeking partners for the 2019 season! Join us as we aim to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident.
These girls may not understand it now, or even think about it in the future, but they have each taught me something about every single one of the lessons we have discussed; about teamwork, about real beauty, about friendship, about positivity, about compassion, about physically and mentally healthy behaviors, and yes, about gratitude.

Hazel Green High School
All races begin at 7:30am
Choose from one mile, 5K, 10K, half marathon, marathon, 50K or 50 miles. Generous time limit, tons of support, mostly flat course, relaxed atmosphere. Test your abilities – and have a bunch of fun doing it – at the inaugural Awesome Possum! Join us on the Trojan Trail around Hazel Green High School, just north of Huntsville, during our full-day running party!
The course is a 3.1 mile loop around the grounds of Hazel Green High School. It is gravel right now, but there is a possibility it may be asphalt by race day, so plan for both and we’ll keep you posted! It is mostly flat, with some very short, small inclines and declines – we don’t think they are big enough to be called hills, but they are what make this course not completely flat.
Walkers and slower runners are welcome and encouraged to join us! The multiple loop course means you’ll never be left behind. Time limit of 14(ish) hours for all distances…we’ll start packing things up at 14 hours, but if you’re still moving forward, we’re not going anywhere. We want to see you finish!
All runners receive an oversized coffee mug as their race “swag” (with the option to choose a cotton t-shirt instead), a tree seedling, a finisher’s medal for all distances, all the food you can eat from Saturday morning until the last runner finishes, and a rocking good time!
A tree seedling? Really? Yes, really. Hazel Green High School is working on planting trees along the trail, so not only will YOU receive a seedling to plant at your own house, a tree seedling in each runner’s name will also be donated to Hazel Green High School to be planted – or YOU can do the planting! – along the trail where we’ll be running. A donation for every runner will be made to Hazel Green High School to use as they see fit. (Special thanks to Principal Long for not only allowing us to use the trail for this event, but also for dreaming up the trail and making it happen!)
We don’t do shirts as normal race swag, but they will be available for purchase both during the registration period and a limited amount will be available on race day.
Food at the aid station to include (but not limited to):
Energy gels, fruit (bananas, oranges, etc.), peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, grilled cheese sandwiches, hummus and kalamata olive wraps, quesadillas, various soups and broths including vegetarian options, pickles and pickle juice, a variety of chocolate candy (Snickers, Milky Way, Reese’s peanut butter cups, peppermint patties, etc.), a variety of sugary candy (gummy bears, Skittles, Sour Patch Kids, Twizzlers, etc.), a variety of cookies, chips, chili, baked potatoes, burgers…we’ve been known to buy a kitchen sink when we go grocery shopping!
Drinks to include Gatorade, water, sodas, coffee, hot chocolate, chocolate milk. Vegans and dairy-free runners, we’ve got you covered with chocolate almond milk.
We also come armed with Vaseline, BioFreeze, basic blister popping supplies, painkillers, salt pills, feminine products, ponytail holders, all the random stuff that helps you get across the finish line.
Any runners expecting to take longer than 10 hours will be required to have a headlamp or flashlight. It will get dark around 5pm.

Finish off your year the right way, the best way, with a great run. Beautiful trails on the scenic and historic Lookout Mountain make the Lookout Mountain 50 miler & 10k a great event for all. With a start and finish at Covenant College on Lookout Mountain, GA and a beautifully challenging course that will take you through the Chattanooga Nature Center, Arboretum, and Lula Lake Land Trust, this is clearly one of the best races in the Southeast each year.
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 â€œflat and fastâ€ 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.
The Mustang MudRun 5K, presented by Madison Academy, is a premiere Mud Run offered in North Alabama. The 5K (3.1 miles) obstacle course situated on the beautiful campus of Madison Academy in Madison, Alabama will challenge participants with 15-20 obstacles along and through Indian Creek and the adjacent wooded areas on campus. This family-friendly fun mud run is open to anyone over the age of 12. Runners can expect to slip, slide, climb, jump, slog and swing their way to a fun finish where refreshments and music are waiting.
The Lil’ Muddy 1K obstacle run is for all of the awesome future mud runners aged 6-11. Lil’ Muddy racers will have a fun filled course with challenging obstacles and plenty of MUD! A parent/guardian can race in both the 5K and 1K with the 5K entrance fee or just the 1K at the reduced fun run rate.
We will be running multiple heats including one for elite racers and an open heat for racers ages 12 and up. Runners will be responsible for their own time tracking. The objective is to have fun and complete the run, not to finish first. Grab a team and step outside of your box!
