This Event Took Place Sat. Mar 23, 2024

Welcome to The Cove!!

McLemore Cove is a 15 mile long valley in the ā€œVā€ between the Lookout Mountain to the west and Pigeon Mountain to the east. It is about 45 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, TN and Fort Payne, AL and about 1 hour from Dalton, GA. Like most beautiful places it is a little out of the way. Its unique location between Pigeon Mountain and Lookout Mountain makes it geologically a transition between the Cumberland Plateau and Ridge and Valley province of the Appalachian Mountains.

About the Course(s)

Our races will start in The Cove at the beautiful Mountain Cove Farms and quickly climb up Pigeon Mountain for all race distances. Pigeon Mountain is famous for Rocktown and Ellison's Cave. It is also home to the ghost town of Estelle. We will keep you well clear of the dangers of Ellison's Cave. Both the 30K and 50K routes will get to go by Rocktown. 50K runners will go down the Estelle Mines Trail past (or possibly through?!?) the old railroad tunnels.?? The 50K will also pass Pocket Falls and the High Point Overlook.
