This race is a fantastic introduction to trail running for the novice and other than one hill, it is a flat and fast course for the speed demons looking to set a personal best time. The course is 100% on dirt trail with the exception of a suspension bridge over South Chickamauga Creek. This event is open to anyone traveling at any speed. Hikers are most welcome and there are separate awards for the hikers. The run/hike will be followed by post race snacks, beverages and free admission to the Little Owl Festival which includes the following and more: Raptor Release, Animal Exhibits, Live Music, Water Quality Demonstrations, Guided Hikes, Falconry Demonstrations, Wildlife and Cultural Education, Craft and Food Vendors.
