2022 Mountain Miler Race Set For March 12-13

Friday, January 14, 2022

Lula Lake Land Trust announces the Lula Laker: Mountain Miler fundraising trail race to kick-off the land trust’s 2022 Lula Laker Race Series. Trail Runners and Mountain Bikers will compete in their choice of a 10-mile or 18-mile course that traverses the entirety of Lula Lake’s famous trail systems—taking them through the heart of nature with a 2,000-foot elevation gain. Both races will take you through beautiful backcountry scenery… but be warned, the 18 miles will be gorgeous, but they aren’t for the faint of heart.
 
“The second annual Mountain Miler is the first race in our 2022 Lula Laker Series,” says Matthew Hubbard, LLLT director of development.
“The Lula Laker series has continued to offer unique courses for racers to enjoy while supporting Lula Lake’s conservation efforts. We’re excited to continue this new signature race series this year to give recreational athletes an optimal experience.”
 
Runners will compete on Saturday, March 12 with the 18-mile race starting at 8:30 a.m. and the 10-mile race will start at 9 a.m. Mountain Bikers will compete on Sunday, March 13 with the 18-mile course start at 9 a.m. and the 10-mile course at 9:30 a.m. Each participant will receive a number bib during check-in and will be tracked through UltraSignup. A limited number of camping spots for competitors will be available at Lula Lake’s Core Preserve for Saturday night, March 12 as an add-on. 
 
The Mountain Miler requires a registration fee of $55 to compete – includes the famous Lula Lake combo lunch of a hotdog and beer. Lula Lake Land Trust is a non-profit organization, and 100 percent of this race fee goes directly back into trail building efforts and conservation initiatives. Registration and more details are available online at www.LulaLake.org/events. 
 
The Lula Laker: Mountain Miler is sponsored by Audi Chattanooga, Village Volkswagen of Chattanooga and Fleet Feet Chattanooga.
