Click here for race details!
The Chattanooga Mountains Stage Race is three exciting days of trail running in the beautiful mountains surrounding Chattanooga. This challenging -- yet attainable -- series includes 18 miles on Raccoon Mountain for Day 1, 22 miles on Lookout Mountain for Day 2, and a 20-mile grand finale on Signal Mountain. We recommend staying at The Crash Pad, and refueling each night at one of Chattanooga’s great eateries.
Proceeds benefit Wild Trails, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the use, expansion and promotion of trails in greater Chattanooga.
