Black Creek Mountain and the Chattanooga Track Club are hosting a 5K & Jingle Bell Fun Run and a Holiday Home Tour on Saturday, Dec. 14. Net proceeds will go to the Chattanooga Area Food Bank and Heart of the Valley Fund.
The Day of Giving at Black Creek Mountain will be an annual event where residents, members and friends and family can come together and help support the Chattanooga and Lookout community.
The 5K is at 3 p.m., the 1-mile Fun Run for children is at 4:15 p.m., and an awards ceremony will be held when both races are finished. Black Creek Mountain invites all residents to turn their Christmas lights on early to make this sunset run as special as possible.
Warm refreshments and holiday snacks will be provided, and participants are encouraged to bring food donations for the Food Bank.
The 5K course takes runners through the Black Creek Mountain neighborhood and ends at the newly renovated clubhouse followed by a Fun Run and the 2nd Annual Holiday Home Tour.
“The race is a great way to give back to our community during the holiday season, which is what the holidays are truly about,” said Maggie McCallie, resident of Black Creek Mountain. “We want the runners to enjoy a fun and challenging course while taking in the beauty of the holiday decorations around them.”
The 2nd annual Black Creek Holiday Home Tour will be from 5-7 p.m. All proceeds will help bring Christmas to children in the Lookout Valley area through the Heart of the Valley Christmas Fund. The tour will feature some of Black Creek’s homes decorated for the holidays.
