The Chattanooga Mountains Stage Race consists of three exciting days of trail running in the beautiful mountains surrounding Chattanooga. This challenging -- yet attainable -- series includes 18 miles on Raccoon Mountain for Day 1, 22 miles on Lookout Mountain for Day 2 with a slight change from last year...roughly the same mileage and climbing, and a 20-mile grand finale on Signal Mountain.
Race proceeds benefit Wild Trails, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the use, protection and expansion of nature trails in the greater Chattanooga area.
This is not for beginners. If you cannot comfortably hold a 13.5 min per mile pace for 20 miles on moderately difficult trails, please do not sign up for this event. We will hold strict cut-off times as follows: Day 1 (Raccoon Mtn) 18 miles - 4 hours. Day 2 (Lookout Mtn) 22 miles - 5 hours. Day 3 (Signal Mtn) 20 miles - 5.5 hours.
Perhaps the best part of these three days is the camaraderie and the chance to get to know like minded nut cases. The festivities each night will be at the Crash Pad and beer provided by Chattanooga Brewing Company, so you may want to grab a hotel near.
Local time: 5:06 AM
Runners wristband will get you access to the beer. All others can purchase beer tickets at $3 bucks per.
