“This is an early December trail race spanning a hundred miles in North Georgia!
— Victor Mariano
Race - Nov 30, 2018
The Chattanooga 100 is an out-and-back course, with a loop at the beginning and a loop at the turn-a-round point.
Runners will have ample aid station opportunities, passing 5 locations twice (out and back). In addition, there will be two fluid-only aid stops. The total time allowed for completion will be 33 hours.
With the race being held during the late fall, runners should be prepared for cold weather. Review all information on the race website concerning course conditions and requirements.
This race begins in Cloudland Canyon State Park with a 1/2 marathon loop on some of the most scenic trails in the park. Cloudland Canyon is one of the largest parks in Georgia. With it's thousand-foot deep canyons, sandstone cliffs, and abundant woodlands, runners will have amazing views and beautiful singletrack trails.
After the loop, runners will head northward towards Lookout Mountain on a series of trails that cover the gamut of conditions. Runners will traverse several trails in the Lula Lake Land Trust and then continue to Covenant College, with views of the iconic Lookout Mountain. From the turnaround point, runners will return to the Start/Finish area in Cloudland Canyon.
Hardwood trees abound at Cloudland Canyon; hemlock groves, maple trees, oaks, hickories, and sassafras can all be along the route. As this race is in December, most of the trees will be void of leaves. Also common to the area are black bear, red-tailed hawks, screech owls, chipmunks, and flying squirrels.
