Rock/Creek Announces New Finisher’s Prize from SmartWool for the Chattanooga Mountains Stage Race

Two more weeks to sign up for this challenging trail running race
Today Rock/Creek announces a new finisher’s prize for their 3nd annual Chattanooga Mountains Stage Race, presented by SmartWool benefiting The Boonies. The first 50 racers who finish all three grueling days will receive a merino top honoring them as finishers in one of the most challenging races in the area. The third running of the race will take place on June 19, 20, 21, 2009. This caliber of a race, never seen in the Southeast until recently, consists of 3 exhilarating days of mountainous trail running.
“All race battle wounds are healed from last year’s debut race, and racers now have experience with the intense course. This should really up the ante and make for a high level of competition” says Mark McKnight, one of the race organizers; “We already have ten states represented and I imagine SmartWool’s finisher’s prize will attract even more world-class athletes to Chattanooga.”IMG_0806
The course showcases three beautiful mountains surrounding Chattanooga, including 20 miles on Lookout Mountain on day one, 18 miles on Raccoon Mountain on day two, and 22 miles to a grand finish on Signal Mountain for day three.
This challenging yet attainable race benefits The Boonies (Wilderness Trail Running Association) with their ongoing trail building and maintenance campaigns. The race will be presented by Rock/Creek, sponsored by SmartWool, Marmot, Salomon, Hammer Nutrition and Greenlife. Pre-registered participants will receive a technical tee by Marmot. Prizes and raffles will be provided as well. The race is the fourth in the 2009 Rock/Creek Trail Series; the next race will be the Greenway 5 Mile Trail Race in August.
