Thursday, August 08, 2013
The 25 th Annual 5K for FCA will be held on Labor Day, Monday, September 2nd at
Chattanooga State Technical Community College and will add a 10K option for area runners.

Both races will begin at 8:30 a.m.  and walk-up registration is scheduled from 6:30 – 8.  This family friendly event features a very flat 5K run/ walk course, most of which is in the Tennessee Riverpark with the new 10K course extending up the riverwalk before returning to the Chatt.

There is also a one-mile kid’s run for those young runners working towards their Jr. Marathon as well as a Kiddy K for the little tykes.  Special cross country team participant rates are available.  All runners registered by Aug 17 guaranteed to receive a “Tech” shirt this year.  All proceeds go to support FCA’s outreach  to coaches and athletes on high school, middle school and college campuses throughout Southeast Tennessee.

The Chattanooga FCA is thrilled to have Front Runner Athletics again serving as our
presenting sponsor for the event.  There will be great prize drawing items, including several
pairs of New Balance running shoes.  For more information on events and to get a registration
