The inaugural Chattanooga Marathon will take place March 4-6, 2016 with events including an Expo, Kids Fun Run, 5K, Team Relay, and a Half and Full Marathon. The new course will feature the best of Chattanooga’s scenic views, from North Shore, Downtown, and into the St. Elmo area.

“The Chattanooga Marathon weekend will be a showcase of what makes us such a unique city,” says Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke. “From designing a course that runs through over a dozen local neighborhoods to testing tomorrow’s high tech sports applications using our Gigabit infrastructure, our marathon will be a one-of-a-kind event for both residents and visiting athletes.”

Convention and Visitor’s Bureau President Bob Doak believes the event will demonstrate Chattanooga’s ability to host world-class sporting events and will boost tourism for the area.
