Comments about this route:
The Chickamauga Battlefield "Experienced" Half Marathon Training Program will run this week's training program in coordination with the John Bruner Memorial Missionary Ridge Road Race.
Participants of the experienced half marathon program should meet at the First Lutheran Church (2800 McCallie Ave – near the Brainerd/McCallie Ave). Please take one of the provided buses to Bragg Reservation for our training run, which will be run in coordination with the John Bruner Memorial Missionary Ridge Road Race (register for the race at www.ChattanoogaTrackClub.org).
The Missionary Ridge Road Race covers approximately 5 miles. To achieve your desired 8 mile run you will need to do an additional 3 miles either before or after the race.
If you want to get an early start get to the church between 6:30 – 7:00 am and catch a bus to the start. This should leave you with time to do a 3-mile warm up before the race starts at 8:00 am.
If you prefer to sleep in a bit arrive at the church between 7:00 – 7:30 am to get to the start by 8:00 am. After the 5-mile race you can get another 3 mile run in by running back to the cars. If you brought a bag with you on the bus drop it with Charlene and she will drive it back to the church for you to pick up after the run.
Once at the Reservation (either before or after the race) look for the Chattanooga Track Club tent, Charlene or Flash will be there with maps and drinks.
