City Trail Chattanooga

2017 Race Canceled

Due to Gociety's unexpected cancellation of their Adventure Fest Chattanooga event we are forced to cancel this year's City Trail Chattanooga race. This is extremely frustrating and we apologize to all participants. The City Trail race is always such a unique racing experience. Those who have signed up will receive an email with details on their options.

Join us for a new running concept...the Chattanooga City Trail race--a hybrid trail and road running event. The Chattanooga City Trail race will undoubtedly go down as an "urban epic" running experience. This course will not only test you with the fitness challenges that you would expect from Wild Trails, but you will also get an inside look at some of our city's historic features.

Open Course:
This City Trail concept is to maximize running off roads as much as possible and to learn to run safely in the city, in concert with the vehicles. Unlike road races, the City Trail races are not on the roads but rather in the alleys, on sidewalks, stairs, parks and as much dirt as we can find in the city. This also means that the course is open and the cars will not stop for you. It is your responsibility to navigate this course safely on your own. You will not see many police and, other than the few blocks to start the race, there will be no road closures. Do not run in the roads and when crossing the roads, look both ways...just like your parents taught you.

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.

Aid Station Details

Each aid station should contain water, TailWind, bananas, oranges, salty and sweet snacks and plenty of other fun surprises. The later aid stations on the 30K course will have Spring Energy gels. In order to be better stewards of our natural spaces we are a cupless event so be sure to have a water bottle or hydration pack with’s also just a good idea to keep you hydrated between aid stations.
