Wauhatchie Trail Run
Saturday, December 20, 2003
9:45 AM EST
at the Tennessee Wildlife Center and Reflection Riding
In honor of the memory of Chris Presley
THE COURSE: A hilly 6.7 miles of gravel/dirt roads and rough trails on the lower slopes of Lookout Mountain. The elevation change between low point (the start/finish) and high point of the course is 410 feet.
COST: $6.00; $5.00 for CTC Members. This fee includes admission to the Tennessee Wildlife Center and Reflection Riding. Race-day registration only, beginning at 8:30 AM.
FORMAT: This is an age / sex handicapped race. The Males ages 25 to 29 are considered the fastest group and start at time “zero.” All other groups receive a headstart as shown in the table below, with the headstart being how long (in minutes:seconds) before the scratch runners that group starts. The Females age 70 and over start at 9:45 AM and the Males 25 to 29 at 10:17:45 AM. If you want to run with a friend, you may start later than your assigned time, but not earlier.
AWARDS: In keeping with the location of this race, this will be a “recycling” event. Everyone will be a winner if you bring one prize for the prize table; i.e. trophy (running or non-running related is fine), tee shirt, cap, etc. Dig into your closet to find that long-lost treasure that you know a fellow-finisher will cherish. The overall champion will be recognized with a special award. Door prizes will be provided by The Front Runner.
FAMILY AWARDS: Awards to the top two-person family team, the team result being computed by adding the official (including handicap) times of the two runners. Team members must have one of the following relationships to each other: (1) spouses, (2) parent-child, (3) grandparent-grandchild, (4) siblings, or (5) aunt/uncle with niece/nephew.
HAZARDS: This race will involve steep uphills and steep downhills on trails covered with leaves, rocks and tree limbs. Do not run this race unless you have trained on trails, and you are comfortable running on them. Due to the roughness and isolation of the course, you must be at least 12 years old to participate.
OTHER: Runners are invited to bring goodies to share at the post-race feeding frenzy – no alcohol, please. The women’s bathroom is a three-seater and the men’s a two-seater, so either prepare ahead of time or expect to stand in line! The race site is a nature preserve – no pets allowed. Refreshments provided by Powerade, Lookout Mountain Tomato and Banana Co., and Great Harvest Bread Co.
DIRECTIONS: Get off Interstate 24 at exit #175, Brown’s Ferry Road & Lookout Mountain. This is the first exit west of downtown Chattanooga. Go south on Brown’s Ferry Road for 6/10 mile, taking a left at the traffic light onto Cummings’ Highway. Go 7/10 mile and take a right onto state road #318. Follow the Tennessee Wildlife Center and Reflection Riding signs from there.
