Rock/Creek and Wild Trails have announced the first of three days of the Chattanooga Mountains Stage Race, presented by SmartWool, coming up tomorrow, Friday, June 18, 2010. Racers have begun to arrive in Chattanooga and will be picking up their race packets at Rock/Creek at 2 North Shore today.
Around 200 participants are coming from 18 states across the country, from as far away as Colorado, New Mexico, and New Hampshire. Runners from the Southeastern states are strongly represented as is typical in this series.
