The starting point for this route is: First Lutheran Church (2800 McCallie Ave)
Comments about this route:
The Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon training program will run its 12 mile training run in coordination with the John Burner Memorial Missionary Ridge Road Race.
Participants of the marathon training 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). I suggest you get to the church sometime between 6:30 – 7:00 am to catch a bus.
Once at the Reservation look for the Chattanooga Track Club tent, Charlene or Flash will be there with maps and drinks. Depending on how early you get to the reservation and how fast you run you will probably do a 3 or 4 mile warm up before the race, which starts at 8am. After the 5 mile race you can get another 3 or 4 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.
