Here’s how things will go down on race weekend!
ALL times are EASTERN TIME ZONE. Raccoon Mountain is technically in the Central Time Zone, your phone will sometimes switch between time zones while you are up there, but we operate on Chattanooga time – EASTERN.

Saturday, March 16, 2019
7:30am – 8:44am: Last-minute packet pickup at Laurel Point on Raccoon Mountain
PM half marathoners: We’ll have your packets available all morning at the race start/finish. You can pick them up anytime after 7:30am on race day if you don’t pick up on Friday.
8:35am: Awesomesauce Gang and Sloth Society photos at the start line.
8:40am: Race director starts yelling instructions that most people won’t listen to.
8:45am: Marathon and morning half marathons begin.

Hang out afterward for food, drink, and general frivolity! Besides post-race food (plenty for EVERYONE, including you back-of-the-packers!), there will be BioFreeze, yoga mats for stretching, and foam rollers available.
Post-race food is complimentary for runners. We suggest a minimum $5 donation for spectator food. Just drop it in the bucket on the food table.
NOTE: Parking is limited at the race start/finish at Laurel Point on Raccoon Mountain. Please carpool if you can! There is plenty of parking on the mountain, but the more cars there are, the further you’ll be from the start/finish. Race-day packet picker uppers are welcome to just grab their bib and pick up the rest of their swag after the race.
Relay teams will receive information via email about where team members should park.
