That Dam Race, An Awesomesauce Event presented by Run Chattanooga

What’s better than running by yourself? Running with a bunch of crazy fun people, that’s what! A brand new race by the kids at Awesomesauce will have you running or walking along the beautiful Tennessee River, with a bunch of the funnest people you’ve ever met, starting from the Chickamauga Dam.

The course is basically completely flat, on a paved path that begins at the Chickamauga Dam, behind the campus of Chattanooga State, and alongside the Tennessee River, passing playgrounds and restrooms with toilets that flush. 

Yep, you read that right, toilets that flush and sinks with running water and soap. Who cares about the scenery, is this a runner’s dream or what?

This course is a little bit different from our perennial Freeze Your Half Off and Burn Your Half Off, in that it is a single out-and-back course, done multiple times for those of you doing longer distances.

Both races are super low-key and non-competitive; we’d prefer to race you vs. you, not you vs. anyone else. There is a 4 hour time limit for all distances.

Your registration fee includes entry into the race distance of your choosing, race swag, finisher medal for all distances, and our usual aid station setup including Gatorade, water, Gu, and snacks and post-race food.

Shirts are NOT included in your race fee. We do give out race swag, it just won’t be a shirt! As is tradition with this race, shirts, tank tops, hoodies, and other swag will be available for purchase during registration and on race day.

As with any other race put on by any other company, registration fees and add-on fees are final and are not refundable or transferable for any reason. Prices are subject to change. The races will go on rain, snow, or shine.

This is the 2nd race in the Awesomesauce Riverwalk Series.
