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.
