The 2011 Rock Creek Trail Race Series begins this month with the Southern 6. This 6K race will be held on Sunday, February 20th and includes a Kiddie K for young runners to take to the trails. For more than a decade, Rock/Creek has been the sponsor for trail racing in the Chattanooga area. Wild Trails is the 501(c) 3 organization that runs the races in the series and distributes the proceeds to promote the future of trails in the region.
The Southern 6 provides a family friendly event for runners of every age. The race runs through the trails on the campus of Southern Adventist University. These trails provide for comfortable running with a few challenging sections to add spice to the race. Proceeds for the race will benefit the Outdoor Leadership Program at the university.
Online pre-registration ends Monday, February 14, 2011. Race day registration begins at 11:00 am. The 6k race begins at 1:00 pm with the Kiddie K scheduled to begin around 2:30.
