Cancellation of Marathon, Half Marathon & Junior Marathon

At this time the National Park Service can not guarantee a race permit for the Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon, Half Marathon, and Junior Marathon. The NPS has also informed us that the likelihood of having an event of this size in November is highly unlikely.

Given the lead time it takes to prepare for this race, the Chattanooga Track Club has decided to cancel the marathon, half marathon, and junior marathon in 2020.

Everyone currently registered for the Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon, Half Marathon, and Junior Marathon will be automatically deferred and registered for next year’s race, scheduled for November 13, 2021.

Fort Oglethorpe 5k Continues

The Fort Oglethorpe 5k will still take place on November 14, 2020, as the 5k course does not enter the park.
