The Rock/Creek 6 Shooter 6 Hours & 5K presented by The North Face is sure to become a Southeastern classic! This event utilizes the beautiful trail system within the 317-acre property of Chattanooga's own Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center.

The 6 Shooter trail race takes place in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day & events held throughout the day on Reflection Riding property. This is a race for EVERYONE. It is a 2 mile loop with around 190 feet of elevation gain. You decide what happens in the 6 hours of running. You can run the entire time or you can skip a loop. It's simply what you want to run/walk in 6 hours. These events include live music, guided hikes, guided paddling trips, shoe and outdoor gear demos, food, beer, evening films and much more!

This event also coincides with the long-standing Native Plant Sale that draws thousands each year. Come run the fantastic trails and then spend the day with us at Chattanooga's Earth Day Festival! All participants will receive a hat with 6 Shooter participants receiving a custom pint glass, too. You can find more info on the festival at
