Relay Team Captains

Teams need to appoint a team captain who will be responsible for registering the team. Team captains are also responsible for checking the team in before the race starts and picking up a team race packet. Team rosters and individual waivers are due at check in on race day.

Race Course & Relay Team Camps

1.75 mile loop around Greenway Farm (a lap to mileage chart will be provided at the race).

The loop is largely smooth packed dirt & grass, although there is a section on packed gravel and a short section on asphalt. The loop is flat, with the exception of one short hill where the dirt path ends and the gravel path starts (the hill is dirt).

Dirt, gravel, and asphlat paths of the course.

 

Teams have 6 or 12 hours to run and/or walk as many laps as they can. Team members may run/walk in whatever order and with whatever frequency the team chooses. Teams may only have one member on the course at a time. For a lap to count the same team member must start and finish the lap.

A drink station with water and sports drinks is available for teams at the start/finish of each lap.

Teams are encouraged to set up a team "camp" in the field next across from start/finish. Pop-up tents and chairs are allowed and encouraged. No over night camping is allowed - camp sites are for use during the race only.

Teams should provide their own food. Why no race food for teams? So we can keep entry fees down and to ensure enough food is available to solo racers.

The loop is not lighted, please bring a headlamp for the laps during the last 45 minutes of the race. You can easily pick up your headlamp from your chair or from the aid station when you need it.

Please note this a run/walk event. No bikes, skates, or other modes of transportation allowed.

Packet Pick-Up

Bibs and timing chips for the 12 hour race can be picked up on race morning from 7:15 am - 7:45 am. Bibs & timing chips for teams should be picked up by the team captain.

Bibs and timing chips for the 6 hour race can be picked up on race day from 1:15 pm - 1:45 pm. Bibs & timing chips for teams should be picked up by the team captain.

At packet pick-up please be sure to get your team's photo taken in our photo booth so you team's finisher's "swag" can be printed while you run.

Race Swag

This is a low key, low frills race.

All participants will receive a copy of their team's race photo at the end of the race (be sure to have your team stop by the photo booth before the start of the race so we can take your team picture!).

There are no race t-shirts, finishers medals, or other swag.

What? Why NO shirts or medals? Because we want to keep costs down and enable more people to participate. Feel free to make your own t-shirt or medal - be creative!

If there are no shirts or medals why is my team paying $50 - $70? Because races have expenses. Your entry fees go to cover rental fees for Greenway Farm, timing fees, rental of port-a-potties, drinks, the printing of race photos, the purchasing of race awards, and other race related expenses. Any proceeds from the race will go to the Chattanooga Track Club, a non-profit promoting walking and running in the greater Chattanooga area.
