The annual Scenic City Mud Run is just around the corner, and CHI Memorial has joined as the title sponsor. 

“Surrounding yourself with trusted team members is an important part of the recipe for success," said Rhonda Poulson, senior vice president and chief nursing officer, CHI Memorial.  "Our nurses, physicians, and medical staff here at CHI Memorial work as a team every day to provide our patients with the best medical care possible. We are excited to be a part of this fun event that celebrates this same spirit of teamwork as participants work together to conquer the challenges they face.”

The run takes place on Saturday, Aug. 19, at Greenway Farm in Hixson, and includes ninja style obstacles, a jumbo slip n’ slide, mud pits and more.  Additionally a portion of the proceeds will go to the Southeast Tennessee Veterans Coalition to assist with their new building in downtown Chattanooga.

A MASH themed shirt will be given to all race participants, and runners can choose their start times.  Individual and team, timed and untimed options are available.
