10106320923_1a6668a14e_zIt’s here! The StumpJump 50k & 11-mile race is here! Ok, it’s actually tomorrow, but the event is here! You’ve been training and planning, and now all of that hard work is about to pay off.

Packet Pickup is today at 2 North Shore.

Runners participating in the 50k are running in the largest and most competitive 50k in the Southeast. The scenic single-track trail will take runners across Signal Mountain and Walden Ridge with more than 4000 feet of elevation gain. Woah!

In addition to this being the thirteenth year of this epic run, this year’s run is Road Runners Club of America’s (RRCA) Ultra Championship. The goal of the RRCA Championship Event Series is to shine a spotlight on well-run, community-based events, and to promote the sport of running by recognizing the top performing runners in several age groups.

We would like to thank those that make putting on this run possible: Salomon, North Face, Capitol Toyota and Toyota of Cleveland, Get Out Chattanooga, Patagonia, Whole Foods Market and High Point Climbing and Fitness.

Welcome to all you runners who are in the area! We hope you enjoy your stay. We also hope you have an excellent and safe run tomorrow.

Be sure to check out all of our sponsors when you stop in to pick up your packets at 2 North Shore:

Whether you need a new pair of running clothes or just want to take in all the outdoor goodness! You’ll also find an array of necessities for your run tomorrow—electrolyte additives for your hydration, water bottles for your hydration, nutrition bars, trail appropriate clothing, etc. Be sure to check out Salomon and the North Face and Patagonia for all of their trail running supplies.

Whole Foods Market: An excellent place to grab a bite, a beer, or any manner of recovery items. Whole Foods has what you need to get you through the race or just through a day.

High Point Climbing and Fitness: Chattanooga’s newest climbing gym will help you stretch every muscle, not just your legs! Be sure to stop by the beautiful facilities and take scenic Chattanooga in from a different perspective.

Capitol Toyota and Toyota of Cleveland: These great guys provide the trucks that we use to carry our equipment. Be sure to stop by and thank them for their continued sponsorship.

Again, we’re excited you’re here! We hope you have a wonderful day of running tomorrow. We look forward to serving you as you run and play in Chattanooga.
