The forty-ninth running of The Chickamauga Chase will be held on April 22nd, 2017
The Chickamauga Chase has been held since 1969 in the historic and beautiful Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park. The Chickamauga Chase is Chattanooga's oldest continuously run road race, and the signature event 15K is one of America's oldest races at that distance. With the competitive 15K, Trail Race, 5K, 2.4-Mile Scenic Walk and Kiddie K, the Chickamauga Chase is a must do event for the entire family!
The courses take runners past many of the park's historic sites, monuments and markers within the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park, located just a few miles south of Chattanooga, TN near the towns of Ft. Oglethorpe and Chickamauga, GA.
The Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park is the oldest of our national military parks, established in 1890 to commemorate the heroism of both Union and Confederate soldiers. The Park is a historic treasure, and we are asking for your help to forever protect the irreplaceable treasures of the Battlefield. The Friends of Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organiation that works with the National Park Service to preserve, enhance, and promote the Park in perpetuity.

Over the years The Chickamauga Chase has grown steadily from several hundred runners to nearly 1,700. The Trail Race is limited to 400 participants. These limitation are needed to ensure a safe and orderly event, and to preserve the integrity of our great National Park. Please register early to assure your entry. To help promote our fundraising efforts, the last 100 entries will only be available with a $100 contribution to the Friends of the Park.
