The Erlanger Chattanooga Marathon weekend scheduled for March 5-7, 2021, has been postponed to Nov. 12-14, 2021. Executive Director Cindy Smedal shared the following message with registered participants on Friday:
For the past few months our team has continued to work together with respective local authorities and public health officials in preparing for 2021 Erlanger Chattanooga Marathon Weekend and felt confident we would be able to deliver an exceptional and safe event for all while diligently respecting COVID restrictions and guidelines.
However, based on mandates from the City of Chattanooga in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, we regret to inform you that the 2021 Erlanger Chattanooga Marathon Weekend cannot take place on the original dates of March 5-7.
Athletes that are registered for the race will receive an additional email with further details in the coming weeks.
Registered runners will have the choice to defer into one of the following:
· 2021 Erlanger Chattanooga Marathon Weekend will now be held on November 12-14, 2021.
· 2022 Erlanger Chattanooga Marathon Weekend will be held March 4-6, 2022.
Again, if you are registered you will receive an additional email in approximately 2 weeks with details and options.
In what has been a continually evolving and challenging time, we recognize that the change will come as a disappointment, but we look forward to providing athletes with an exceptional race experience in the future.
