The Chattanooga Chase is the oldest active competitive road race in the area. This year’s event will feature an 8k and 1-mile race through the scenic North Shore neighborhoods. The 8k is known for its challenging hills and breathtaking scenery. Rock Creek will be awarding a PREMIUM to the first male and female to reach the water station atop Minnekahda Avenue, the race’s most challenging climb. The 1-mile race features a fairly flat, fast course through the neighborhood adjacent to Chattanooga Golf and Country Club. The first 50 finishers of each distance will receive a special edition race t-shirt!

100M Relay Run
Event Notes: The General 100™ is a 4- or 7- member team running relay covering 100 miles of beautiful, challenging terrain beginning in Kennesaw, Georgia. The course primarily follows scenic country roads winding its way through North Georgia’s historic sites to the finish line in Ringgold, Georgia.
The race route faithfully parallels the railroad from Kennesaw to Ringgold following the route of the famous “Great Locomotive Chase.” On April 12th, 1862, Union soldiers stole “the General” locomotive and several train cars in Big Shanty (Kennesaw) and headed north for Chattanooga. They were quickly pursued with a separate locomotive, by hand-car and finally on foot by the General’s resourceful conductor.
Only 1 team member will take the road at a time. While this individual is completing his or her leg of the relay, the remaining team members will travel by vehicle to the next timing station/exchange point.
