Scenic City Trail Marathon

The Rock Creek Scenic City Trail Marathon and Half Marathon was held Saturday, May 22, 2010. This is a trail run on the trails of Raccoon Mountain just outside of Chattanooga, TN. This is one of the more do-able trail races in the southeast. It's challenging, but not notoriously hilly or technical like some of the other trail races in the Chattanooga area.

Dane Mitchell was the overall winner and set a course record in an amazing 2:43:22. That's nearly 30 minutes off of the previous course record of 3:11:47. He's been breaking records all year! Actually, the top 5 finishers Saturday all broke the previous course record. Huntsville's Kathy Youngren was the overall female winner, also setting a record for women with a 3:37:50.'

The lone Limestone County finisher was Glen King in 4:26:21. Glen was also seen running 12 miles around the streets of Athens on Sunday morning for fun!
