We love the weekends as much as anyone, they provide an awesome opportunity to get out on the trails and to get our feet moving, check out a couple of organized runs for those of you who like the camaraderie of group runs.

Saturday, September 20
It’s the Final StumpJump Training Run. Whether you\’re planning to run the 50k or the 11-mile race, there are plenty of options in this training run.

Sunday, September 21
Kid\’s Trail Run: Kids of all ages welcome! We\’ll meet at Signal Mountain High at the soccer pavilion. There will be 1/2 mile, 1 mile and 2 mile options. We\’ll play a fun game or have a scavenger hunt after the run. Post run drinks and snacks for all kids will be provided, along with a \”finishers\” medal!

Saturday or Sunday
Not interested in a group run or hike? No worries! Chattanooga is known for its extensive network of trails. Not sure where to run? Again, not an issue—head over to RootsRated to find the best trail for the amount of time you have and the level of difficulty you’re interested in tackling. Don’t forget to let someone know you’re heading out on a run.

Running is a great way to stay in shape and enjoy the outdoors, and while the temperatures are cooling a bit, there are always challenges to consider. Make sure you prepare for your runs with water to hydrate, clothing to protect from the sun, and sufficient bug protection. We’ll see you on the trails!
