Finally a triathlon that is geared for the true outdoor adventurer For the Climber,CPR
Paddler and Runner and the only multi-sport race where the top climber has just as much a chance of winning as any other sport. This a time trial race starting with six roped climbs on the outside wall at Highpoint Climbing gym, with each one getting progressively harder. The climber must wait for a set time penalty if they fail to complete a climb. The race then heads to the water with a stand up paddle trip from Ross' Landing to Baylor High School, and then run back to Highpoint on an open, unmarked course. The athlete chooses whatever route they wish as long as they don't run on Hwy 27 or run through the Stringers Ridge tunnel. There will be a celebration on the outside deck at Highpoint afterwards starting at noon.

What a cool way to test yourself and have a great day in downtown as well.  Climb, Paddle and Run along with RiverRocks 2016.

This cool new race starts at 8:00 AM.  Runners have one hour to complete thephoto
four-mile trail loop that goes along the Stringer's Ridge route Eli Lilly used to set up his cannons and shell downtown Chattanooga.  If you don't finish in the hour, you are eliminated. Simple huh?  

Not so fast.  The race resumes at 9:00 AM and those that are eliminated or don't answer the bell are out.  The race continues every hour on the hour until only one runner remains.  After several loops the race director will have the option to reduce the time by one minute per loop and so on.  Start in the morning and finish under the moon with the coyotes and all the exhausted, eliminated runners around you.  If you have the energy, you can take a winner's lap (or just collect your prize and head for a long soak in the tub.)  You'll love it, a chance to test yourself and all your pals.  The Cannonball also features a 10k if that's more what you're looking for so go to Ultra Signup and register for a chance to be the last man (or woman) standing!  Contact cannonballruntrail@gmail.com or check out the facebook page for more info.
