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.

7:30am – 8:29am: 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.
8:30am: Marathon and morning half marathons begin
12:30pm: Afternoon Half Marathon begins
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 pools of ice, BioFreeze, yoga mats for stretching, and foam rollers available.
Please let us know if any spectators will be joining in the post-race food so we can plan accordingly. Post-race food is complimentary for runners. We suggest a minimum $5 donation for spectator food.
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.
