“We love Chattanooga and are excited to provide this free opportunity to our local youth. Hopefully every kid participating will feel like a superhero as they run the mile wearing their Truck N Trailers USA cape,” said Tom Moore, owner & operator of Truck N Trailers USA.

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.
