Lookout Mountain 50 Mile, 18 Mile and 10K Trail Race
December 21, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 pm
The Lookout Mountain trail races begin high atop the mountain at the spectacular Covenant College campus. The course offers a variety of challenging climbs, highly runnable sections and moderate descents on predominantly single track trails. The 50 and 18 mile races travel together until the end of the 18 and other than a mile or so at the beginning to thin the field out, there are no roads. Runners traverse beautifully diverse ecosystems in the scenic and historic Chattanooga National Military Park, the first national military park in the country and passes directly above Craven’s House and the Battle Above the Clouds, one of the most decisive battle sites in the Civil War. The course continues on spectacular trails along Lookout Creek to the bottom of the only significant climb of the day. Ending the race for the 18 milers back at Covenant College. The 50 mile runners continue to navigate two exposed bluff lines with fantastic views.
