- Sunday, September 09 8:00 AM-10:00 AM 2018 Run of Honor 8:00 AM-10:00 AM 2018 Run of Honor Virtual Runner
The RUN OF HONOR 8K and 1 mile fun run is held to support the public servants of our community and is organized together with the Fraternal Order of Police from Rock City, Chattanooga Market, and the Chattanooga Track Club.
UPDATE: The 2018 course has been modified for a safer race experience! Racers will start on 20th, run through the historic Southside neighborhood, loop around the National Cemetery, and return to 20th back into a SPECTACULAR Finley Stadium finish! The 1 Mile walk has also been modified to a course with less vehicular traffic - it will start down on 20th as well, turn up Chestnut, make a loop at the end of the Finley parking lot nearest Main St., take a left down Reggie White, and then left into Finley Stadium to finish under the arch! Net proceeds for RUN OF HONOR will equally benefit the Tim Chapin Scholarship Fund and the Fort Campbell Fisher House.
If you are unable to run or walk – but wish to support these very worthy organizations – please consider participating as a Virtual Runner (includes t-shirt, see details below).
