\”Enter Randy Whorton, who, along with his wife Kris, founded Wild Trails a decade ago, bringing the burgeoning sport to Chattanooga and turning into our stomping grounds into the heart of the southeast’s best-known and continually growing off-road races: “The Stump Jump”, “Upchuck 50K”, and the newest, “Thunder Rock 100 Miler” among others…[READ MORE]
