Whether you are a weekend warrior or a daily trainer, a runner who likes short and speedy runs, or a runner who is in for the long haul; Chattanooga has a run for you.

Friday, August 22
Apply the skills you\’ve been building on the trails to running in the city. This is a 6-mile training run leading up to the Salomon CITYTRAIL run happening on October 25, 2014. Show up a little early to the run and demo shoes from Salomon as well as Suunto Ambit Family fitness watches.

Looking for a group activity, but don\’t see one that piques your interest? Create your own! That\’s right, there are plenty of runners in Chattanooga who would be happy to join you on a run. Join the group on MeetUp.

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, but don\’t forget—it\’s summer and it\’s hot! 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!
