Races and Events

Run Chattanooga hosts two 2-day half marathon events each year: Freeze Your Half Off in January, and it’s counterpart BURN Your Half Off in July.

Due to cost increases from the park, each race is $5, or the entry fee is waived if you purchase a race shirt, hat, or other swag. Donations are happily accepted and merchandise sales help offset our costs.

You do not have to complete all 13.1 miles if you don’t want to or aren’t ready to. You are still welcome to come out and be part of Chattanooga’s largest group runs of the year!

The course is a multi-loop out-and-back on the Tennessee Riverwalk, where you will pass the single aid station multiple times. We will give you rubber bands after each lap to help you keep track of how far you’ve gone.

Bring your own cup or water bottle; we will have water and Gatorade available (but we do not supply cups.) Also, bring food to share at the post-race potluck or at the aid station. If you have old shoes that have passed their best running days, but still have life left in them, please bring them to donate to the Community Kitchen, who will pass them on to the homeless.

Restrooms are available approximately every mile of the course.
