The Rock/Creek Trail Racing Series presents the Greenway 5 Mile Trail Race on August 7th, 2010. This is the fourth year for this trail race that is very popular with beginner wilderness trail runners. Wilderness trail racing has been a growing sport that offers an alternative to track or road marathons. The trails around the Chattanooga area provide for breathtaking views and great diversity in running environments.
Pre-registration for the Greenway Trail Race is encouraged and everyone who registers online before midnight on July 29th will receive a t-shirt. Online registration closes August 4th. You can still register on the day of the race, August 7th, beginning at 8:00 am. The race begins at 9:00 am at Greenway Farms in Hixson Tennessee. You can find more information on Facebook.
Proceeds from this race will benefit Wild Trails, a nonprofit organization that promotes the use, protection and expansion of trails in the Chattanooga area.
