The 44th running of the Chickamauga Chase is April 21st, 2012!

The Chase, which benefits the efforts of the Friends, is the signature event of the Chattanooga Track Club. The oldest continually run road race in the Chattanooga area, the 15k event is one of America's oldest races at that distance. A competitive 5k, Scenic Walk, and Kiddie K make The Chickamauga Chase a must-do event for the whole family. The courses take runners past many of the Park's historic sites, monuments and markers within the Chickamauga Battlefield.

The Friends of the Park are throwing open the iconic gates of Point Park on September 1st for the annual celebration of America's best. Come to our unique and casual Party at Point Park, and you'll rediscover the trove of treasures waiting beyond that familiar arch.

Tap your toes to the rhythms of the Dismembered Tennesseans, masters of American bluegrass. Raise a toast, and savor a fun menu that blends the regional tastes of North and South. Rally around our century-old New York Peace Monument, America's only Civil War monument that specifically honors peace and re-union. Marvel at our billboard-sized Battle of Lookout Mountain painting, amid the roar of celebratory cannon fire.

Visit the newly refurbished Ochs Museum. Then, capture the moment and keep it forever by taking home your own Umbrella Rock photograph. (You'll join the parade of thousands who, down through the decades, have documented their visit of the Point. Umbrella Rock will be open that evening exclusively for National Treasures guests!)   read more (28 words)
