The Chattanooga Marathon Planning Committee announced the Children’s Hospital at Erlanger Kid’s Fun Run Presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee will be free for the first 500 kids that register. This is possible due to the generosity of community partner Truck N Trailers USA.
The Erlanger Chattanooga Marathon Race Weekend will be held March 2-4. The Kid’s Fun Run takes place on Saturday, March 3, at 11 a.m. All registered kids will receive a medal, race bag, bib, T-shirt, and a cape.
“We love Chattanooga and are excited to provide this free opportunity to our local youth," said Tom Moore, owner and operator of Truck N Trailers USA. "Hopefully every kid participating will feel like a superhero as they run the mile wearing their Truck N Trailers USA cape.”
The Erlanger Chattanooga Marathon Race Weekend presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee had its inaugural year in March of 2016 and has grown to be a premier local event that showcases Chattanooga as a wonderful outdoor destination, said officials.
Tim Morgan, president of the Chattanooga Sports Committee said, “We cannot thank Erlanger Health System, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, and Truck N Trailers USA enough for supporting this not-for-profit community event that encourages local kids to get out and be active.”
